Toxic Truths: Lola Akinmade Åkerström & Helen Walsh

Join us for this free, virtual event October 22 at 3:30pm. Registration HERE.

Tune in to an engaging talk with authors Lola Akinmade Åkerström and Helen Walsh about their powerful debut novels, exploring important social issues, from racism, classism and fetishization; to contemporary feminism and toxic masculinity in the #MeToo age. In Nigerian-American writer and photographer Lola Akinmade Åkerström’s In Every Mirror She’s Black, three Black women are linked in unexpected ways to the same influential white man in Stockholm as they build new lives in the most open society run by the most private people. Walsh’s suspenseful, propulsive mystery Pull Focus follows a woman whose partner suddenly goes missing under threatening circumstances, just as she is thrust into the role of director for a major film festival when her boss is removed for sexual harassment.
