We Will Not Be Erased: A Book Club Discussion About gal-dem’s I Will Not Be Erased

Members and friends of The Lit Collective discuss gal-dem’s I Will Not Be Erased, the first text to feature in the book club. Sahra, Aisha and others share their thoughts on the essay collection, reflect on what lessons they would impart on their younger selves and the importance of role models in and beyond literature.

I Will Not Be Erased is a thought-provoking and moving collection of fourteen essays, where gal-dem’s writers use raw material from their teenage years – diaries, poems and chat histories – to explore growing up.

This event took place as part of The Lit Collective Sheffield Online Festival (23–25 July 2020) and is available to watch back below.
