‘Broadwater’ – A book by Jac Shreeves-Lee

July 13

Broadwater – Short stories grounded in Tottenham

Welcome to Broadwater Farm, one of the most well-known housing estates in Britain. A place where post-war dreams of concrete utopia ended in riots, violence and sub-standard housing. In this collection, Tottenham-born Jac Shreeves-Lee gives voice to the people of Broadwater Farm. With evocative language and raw storytelling, she compassionately portrays their shared sense of community. A community with a rich cultural heritage, comprising over forty nationalities, generations old.


‘Broadwater’ is the first publication authored by Enfield resident and Face Front board member: Jacquelyn Shreeves-Lee and we wanted to take the opportunity as part of Face Front Fest 21 to celebrate this huge achievement, and to add our names to the growing list of people praising this work. Here are some links to what others have had to say on the brilliant book, as well as Jac herself.
