An Evening with Kelechi Okafor

An Evening with Kelechi Okafor

Spend an evening in the company of the extraordinary writer, presenter, actor and tour de force, Kelechi Okafor. The host of the popular ‘Say Your Mind’ podcast celebrates her new book, Edge of Here.

In conversation, Kelechi will reveal her collection of speculative fiction stories, exploring contemporary womanhood, love, race and modern culture. She’ll discuss why she wanted to write about the fleeting otherworldliness of our everyday lives, combining modern-day life with concepts both ancient and futuristic. From a Black nurse dealing with a white woman whose voluntarily installed ‘Ally-Chip’ (which allows her to feel the emotions of a chosen donor) is malfunctioning, to the Yoruba-influenced tale of a renowned mental health expert who holds a mysterious secret, these are stories both unique and timely in terms of their explorations of our society—past, present and future. 

With the opportunity to ask your own state-of-the-nation questions, this promises to be an evening full of Kelechi’s inimitable style and humour. 


Presented by Fane. Tickets for this event are booked through Fane Productions’ Box Office
