Sophie Buchaillard | This Is Not Who We Are

Join local author, Sophie Buchaillard, at Penarth Library to hear her talk about her debut novel This is Not Who We Are. In the summer of 1994, two sixteen-year-old girls exchanged an unlikely correspondence. Iris, a French girl, growing up in Paris and Victoria, a Rwandan refugee in the camp of Goma, Zaïre. One day, the letters stopped. What became of Victoria? Was Iris's father somehow involved in the genocide?  Twenty years on, Iris, now a mother and journalist living in London, is haunted by the fate of her former pen friend and sets out to find out what happened to Victoria.  Entry £2 (including a glass of wine or free drink). Booking essential: 02920 708438.
