Bernardine Evaristo: On Never Giving Up image

In her memoir, Manifesto: On Never Giving Up, Bernardine Evaristo brilliantly explains the courage, integrity, optimism, resourcefulness, and tenacity that were a necessary part of her success. Those qualities earned their reward when she won the Booker Prize in 2019 for Girl, Woman, Other. As the Book Festival celebrates its 40th anniversary, Evaristo discusses her latest book and looks back over key events in her life as a writer, with Hannah Lavery.
