Gabriel Gbadamosi, who grew up locally and used Kennington’s Durning Library extensively, launches his first novel as part of the 2013 Lambeth Readers & Writers Festival.
From his sister’s taunts to a series of house fires, from his parents’ crumbling marriage to police harassment and the realisation that the council intends to clear out the ‘slum’ he calls home, young Michael learns to navigate his way through an array of obstacles. Vauxhall is an edgy, moral tale from the childhood slums of 70s London.
Signed copies available.
Music by Vauxhall’s Lambeth Youth Wind Band – donations towards their sheet music will be welcomed.
Durning Library, Wednesday 1 May, 6.45 for 7pm.
