    Trevor Leighton

    Streaming from the Royal Festival Hall, the number one-bestselling author and comedian discusses her new novel, Because of You.

    In conversation with Booker Prize winner Bernardine Evaristo, Dawn French gives you the inside scoop on her arresting page-turner about mothers and daughters, love and loss, mistakes and regret.

    Taking on the age-old debate of nature vs nurture, French’s latest novel, arriving five years after her last, is a meditation on motherhood and what makes us who we are.

    Expect a conversation suffused with French's signature humour and warmth.

    Presented in partnership with Penguin Live.

    This event is pre-recorded exclusively for the Southbank Centre.
