Narrating Sexual Trauma

Wednesday, 14th June, 7 pm. Winnie M Li, writer, producer and activist, will discuss her debut novel Dark Chapter, inspired by her own experience of rape. Marti Leimbach will discuss her latest novel Age of Consent, about a relationship between a grown man and teenage girl.  Dark Chapter was listed by Stylist Magazine as one of "10 Smashing Debut Novels to Look Forward To in 2017," and described as a moving look at all aspects of rape. At the same time it was named Runner-Up for the Crime Writers' Association Debut Dagger, and has been praised by crime writers as "gripping" and "nerve-shredding."

Marti Leimbach is known for tackling tough subjects in an unflinching manner. "When does a relationship become a sexual assault? Marti Leimbach approaches the subject clearly and compassionately," says the New York Journal of Books. She is the author of the international best-seller Dying Young, The Man from Saigon and Daniel Isn't Talking, among other novels.
