Eric Ngalle Charles came to Cardiff in 1999 on a Zimbabwean passport after being illegally trafficked into Russia while fleeing persecution. His debut book Asylum and the accompanying play are a powerful exploration of the experience of seeking refuge. Born in New Orleans, Marjorie Lotfi Gill spent part of her childhood in Tehran, and settled in Edinburgh in 2005. Marjorie founded the shared reading group charity Open Book, and encourages people to tell their own stories as Jupiter Artland’s Writer in Residence. Marjorie and Eric will reflect on their own journeys, and how words can forge a sense of belonging.
