The Girl Who Smiled Beads: Clemantine Wamariya and June Sarpong MBE in conversation
Storyteller and human rights advocate Clemantine Wamariya discusses her new memoir The Girl Who Smiled Beads with TV presenter, social campaigner and author of Diversify June Sarpong MBE.
The Girl Who Smiled Beads is the searing memoir of how six-year-old Clemantine and her older sister Clare fled Rwanda when war broke out and spent the next six years wandering from one African country to another in search of safety. After being granted refugee status in the United States, she embarked on another epic journey—to excavate her past and create her own identity and future in a world with fixed definitions of what it means to be a refugee and a survivor.
Join Clemantine as she discusses her life, her work and her new memoir The Girl Who Smiled Beads with broadcaster and fellow campaigner June Sarpong MBE—author of Diversify, a call to arms for change and a spotlight on the marginalised experience of groups including women, those living with disabilities, and the LGBTQ community.
Tickets: £5 standard.
Venue: Level 6, Foyles 107 Charing Cross Road
