Description

In this talk, Jo will examine how fiction helps us understand and explore our humanity, develop empathy and uncover the truth about ourselves. Story seems to be the most effective way to reflect on our human condition, irrespective of race, politics and gender. As Chinua Achebe, author of Things Fall Apart says, “Literature, whether handed down by word of mouth or in print, gives us a second handle on reality.”
