Verein allerArt: Literary salon: 'Girls, women, etc.'

n »Girls, Women, etc.«, Bernardine Evaristo interweaves the stories of black women over a century into a unique and polyphonic panorama of our time. An impressive novel about origins and identity that reminds us of what holds us together.

The playwright Amma is on the verge of a breakthrough. In her first production at the National Theater in London, she deals with her identity as a black, lesbian woman. Her good friend Shirley, on the other hand, burned out after decades of working on underfunded London schools. Carole owes a lot to Shirley, her former teacher, who now works as a successful investment banker. Carole's mother Bummi also wants to stand on her own two feet and founds a cleaning company. She grew up in poor conditions in Nigeria and for good reasons gave her daughter Carole an English first name.

Even if the women, their roles and life stories in Bernardine Evaristo's girls, women etc. are very different, their decisions, their struggles, their questions never stand alone, they all tell of the desire to find a place in this world.

The contribution towards expenses for a cozy evening with literature is EUR 5.00.
