About the Event

NOMINATED FOR THE 2019 BOOKER PRIZE  WINNER OF THE LA TIMES BOOK PRIZE FOR MYSTERY/THRILLER FINALIST FOR THE 2019 WOMEN’S PRIZE 

Korede’s sister Ayoola is many things: the favorite child, the beautiful one, possibly sociopathic. And now Ayoola’s third boyfriend in a row is dead, stabbed through the heart with Ayoola’s knife. Korede’s practicality is the sisters’ saving grace. She knows the best solutions for cleaning blood (bleach, bleach, and more bleach), the best way to move a body (wrap it in sheets like a mummy), and she keeps Ayoola from posting pictures to Instagram when she should be mourning her “missing” boyfriend. Not that she gets any credit. 

Korede has long been in love with a kind, handsome doctor at the hospital where she works. She dreams of the day when he will realize that she’s exactly what he needs. But when he asks Korede for Ayoola’s phone number, she must reckon with what her sister has become and how far she’s willing to go to protect her.

About our RSVP fee.

All of our events are free, but we do have a small RSVP to hold your place. If you are unable to pay the fee, please put "MYSISTER-NOFEE" into the coupon code upon check out. But please be aware if you do, and you are a no-show without notice you will not be able to use a code to bypass in the future. We input RSVP fees to retain organisation, whilst operating a relatively chilled and relaxed environment. 

All the no-show fees go directly into our Street Child fund with 100% of the donations going to help children in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo, Liberia, Nepal, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Sri Lanka, and Uganda. To find out more about this amazing charity head to www.street-child.co.uk If you wish to make a larger donation please contact them directly or visit https://www.street-child.co.uk/donate if you do not wish to donate the fee, please leave the box unchecked in your registration. 

When children are given the chance to learn, they have a chance to break free from poverty. They have a chance to build a brighter future for their families, their communities and their countries. Every child deserves that chance. 

Thank you.
