Gather your girlfriends for this gorgeous glorification of feminine friendship with Bolu Babalola, a lover of love and self-coined ‘romcomoisseur’. Bolu writes stories of dynamic women with distinct voices who love and are loved audaciously, and is a big believer in women being both ‘beauty and the beast’. Join Bolu for this ‘galentine’ celebration talking all things romance, relationships, rom-coms and of course, her debut novel Honey & Spice, plus a pop culture and romcom interactive quiz.
Bolu Babalola is a British-Nigerian author, screenwriter and journalist. Her funny and sparkling debut, Honey & Spice, is full of delicious tension and romantic intrigue. Her anthology Love in Colour, a collection of short stories remixing ancient love stories from Asia, Greece, and Africa for a new audience, was published in 2020 and became a Sunday Times Bestseller.
