Event description

Description

This workshop series, hosted jointly by the Oxford English Faculty and TORCH and supported by the OUP John Fell Fund, brings a number of contemporary British writers into conversation with readers to discuss how literature shapes our perceptions of the world today and our identities within it. In the first half of each workshop, readers will be able to offer responses to their experiences of reading the book of the week; in the second, the author will give a reading and engage in conversation with the audience.

All are welcome. These sessions will be recorded for podcasting.

4 May (week 2) – Kamila Shamsie

Kamila Shamsie is the acclaimed author of six novels. Born in Pakistan, she now lives in London. In conversation with Elleke Boehmer, she will read from her most recent novel, A God in Every Stone (2014). Mostly set in London and Peshawar in the first decades of the twentieth century, the novel explores ‘the communality [and] contradictions … of empire’ (Tabish Khair, Financial Times). In an opening session, reading groups who have read the novel will be able to offer responses to their experiences of reading it.
