Event description
Join us for an evening with the Booker-winning novelist Salman Rushdie.

About this event

In an illuminating new collection of essays, Languages of Truth, written with his signature wit and energy, he explores the nature of storytelling through the writers who have influenced him, and offers insights into the works of Shakespeare, Cervantes, Samuel Beckett, Toni Morrison, Philip Roth and many others. Alongside these pieces are essays which look anew at migration, multiculturalism and censorship.

Rushdie is one of the most celebrated authors writing today, best known for the award-winning Midnight’s Children, Shame, The Golden House and the 2019 Booker-shortlisted Quichotte. His magical realist masterpiece Midnight’s Children was awarded the Booker Prize and the Best of Booker prize, and in 2007 he received a knighthood for services to literature.

Join one of our greatest contemporary writers for a wide-ranging discussion about his work and his influences, with Guardian associate editor Claire Armitstead. He will also be answering your questions at this livestreamed event.

Running time: 60 minutes
