An american author and former rap star will be speaking at a bookshop to launch her latest novel during Black History Month.
Sister Souljah will discuss her book A Deeper Love Inside at the Stratford Picture House on October 11 at an event organised by the Newham Bookshop.
Ms Souljah’s first novel, The Coldest Winter, about the hip-hop generation, made the New York Times best sellers list when it came out in 1999 and has since sold over one million copies worldwide.
Her new book is a coming of age story that revisits the characters her first through the eyes of a forgotten middle sister.
Sister Souljah played a famous role in the 1992 US presidential election, when her comments about riots in Los Angeles were attacked by candidate Bill Clinton.
