The British Academy Book Prize is awarded annually for a non-fiction book that has made an outstanding contribution to global cultural understanding for a wider public audience.

Winner of the 2022 British Academy Book Prize for Global Cultural Understanding, Alia Trabucco Zerán discusses her book, When Women Kill: Four Crimes Retold, in conversation with journalist and Book Prize jury member Fatima Manji at this online event organised in partnership with the London Review Bookshop.

In her book Alia forensically examines four homicides committed by everyday Chilean women over the course of the 20th century. Taking these four cases in Chile as her starting point, Alia introduces a wholly original and globally significant feminist perspective to the study of women murderers.

Speaker: Alia Trabucco Zerán, writer

Chair: Fatima Manji, Channel 4 News broadcaster and journalist and Book Prize jury member
