Black Ballad Presents... In Conversation With Bolu Babalola

This event is now SOLD OUT


Every good book has a love story at the heart of it right? Well, it depends on what types of books tickle your fancy. 

However, if you are the type of person that loves a good love story, then Bolu Babalola’s debut book, Love In Colour is for you.

The writer and one of the wittiest women on the internet will be in conversation with our Head of Editorial and book lover, Jendella Benson, to discuss her collection of short stories. The pair will discuss Bolu’s literary journey, why she is retelling classic stories and what love means to her. The pair will also be digging deep into a few of the stories that Bolu has written in the book!

We can't express how excited and honoured we feel to be in conversation with one of the finest writers we know and how much joy this book has bought to team BB already. And it's great to know that Bolu shares our sentiment in "looking forward to having a conversation with a community of brilliant, sharp women who get it, for us, by us".
