Okechukwu Nzelu: The Private Joys of Nnenna Maloney at The Lowry, Manchester, 29 March 2020, free entry - Find Out More

How do you begin to find yourself when you only know half of who you are? Join Mancunian writer and teacher Okechukwu Nzelu as he discusses his debut novel, The Private Joys of Nnenna Maloney, and presents the conflicts and confusions, undoings and reimaginings we all feel while trying to figure out where it is we feel we truly belong. Hailed by Booker Prize-winning Bernardine Evaristo as ‘smart, serious and entertaining’, The Private Joys of Nnenna Maloney follows central character Nnenna Maloney as she approaches adulthood and longs to connect with her Igbo-Nigerian culture in a funny and tender tribute to community, faith and forgiveness; to growing up and growing into ourselves.
