Solange and Paul will be at Bloomsbury Festival!

Unbound are thrilled to share that our inaugural writers for Unbound Firsts – Solange Burrell and Paul David Gould will be at Bloomsbury Festival this October. 

Bloomsbury Festival is a ten-day celebration of creativity, set in London and running from 14-23 October in 2022. Each year it presents an inspiring programme of arts, science, literature, performance, discussion, and reflection united around a central theme. 

This year, Bloomsbury Festival has received support from Arts Council England to platform talented writers of colour. Unbound has been invited to present the two selected writers for Unbound Firsts – Solange Burrell and Paul David Gould to speak on a live panel discussion. They’ll be talking about their publishing journey and sharing exclusive readings from their debut novels, before they publicly launch in Spring 2023. 

Paul David Gould’s experiences of work, life and love in Russia inspired his first novel, Last Dance at the Discotheque for Deviants, a literary thriller set in Moscow’s underground gay scene after the collapse of the Soviet Union. Solange Burrell’s Yeseni and the Daughter of Peace is her first novel, chronicling the adventures of young Elewa when she discovers that she has the gift of sight, which compels her to make an impossible decision. 

It's incredibly exciting for our debut novelists to be on the festival circuit before their books are in bookshops, and we’re hoping to see as many of you as possible at this free event.
