ALI SMITH:
AUTUMN
In conversation with Samira Ahmed
2017 sees the launch of
Wimbledon
BookFest’s Festival Read
with Merton
Libraries. We encourage the community
to read Ali Smith’s
Autumn
, which will be
discussed at our Festival launch event.
Ali Smith’s
Autumn
offers a meditation
on a world filling up with borders, and
on what richness and worth are. It casts
an eye over our own time, asking who
we are, right here, right now. This timely
event comes in advance of her new novel
Winter
, and will provide a new unique
insight into its themes.
Ali Smith is an award-winning writer.
Her novel
How to be Both
won the
Bailey’s Prize for Fiction and the Costa
Novel Award. She is also the writer of
Public Library and Other Stories
. We are
delighted to be welcoming her to The
Space at Wimbledon Library to open this
year’s festival.

‘Expansive, shape-
shifting, at once
more stringent
and more consoling
than anything I’ve
read this year.’
Olivia Laing,

‘The novel of
the year.’
