Join our masterclass with Lauren Beukes

Spend 20 minutes with Suzy Brokensha and award-winning author Lauren Beukes.

Ever wondered what it takes to write a book? Or are you battling with writer’s block and in need of inspiration? Join FAIRLADY’s editor-in-chief Suzy Brokensha as she chats to internationally acclaimed South African author Lauren Beukes about her latest novel, Afterland, and how it feels to have the movie rights to one of her novels snapped up by Leonardo DiCaprio (yes, really).

Lauren Beukes is probably best known for her critically acclaimed bestsellers Broken Monsters and The Shining Girls. Both these novels took readers into the mind of a serial killer, with a good dose of the fantastical thrown in. Afterland imagines a world where 99% of the male population has been wiped out by a virus…

Her novels have been published in 24 countries, with some being adapted for film and TV. She also writes comics, is a journalist, screenwriter and documentary filmmaker.
