The Orange Room Collective is thrilled to be back for a special edition of Orange Room Conversations with author Shani Akilah! Join us as we explore themes of Black British love, friendship and more as explored in her debut short story collection, ‘For Such a Time as This’. Get ready for an unforgettable evening packed with dynamic discussion, amazing food, games and music by DJ Rio D!

Join us as we delve deep into pressing topics including:

  • Sickle Cell and dating
  • The tales of being bridesmaids and groomsmen
