An Evening with Zadie Smith

An Evening with Zadie Smith

For tickets to this event click BOOK NOW button above


Zadie Smith is one of Britain’s best-loved novelists. Her body of work includes three essay collections, a short-story collection, and six acclaimed novels, including White Teeth and On Beauty (which was short-listed for the Man Booker Prize and won the 2006 Orange Prize for fiction).

Smith’s new novel, The Fraud is all based on historical figures – including novelists, alleged fraudsters, freed slaves – who lived in Smith’s own London neighbourhood of Kilburn. But the novel is as international as it is local and addresses issues of politics and identity that make The Fraud feel as much about today as about the past.

On June 17 Zadie Smith comes to Intelligence Squared live at Union Chapel to talk about 'The Fraud' and her career as a writer.

Join us live at Union Chapel and put your questions to one of today’s leading novelists.
