Event description

Description

We are delighted to be hosting the launch of ‘May We Borrow Your Country,’ an anthology of short stories and poetry by The Whole Kahani Writers’ Collective.

Displacement. Disquiet. Desire.

The Whole Kahani examine the displaced and the dispossessed in their second anthology May We Borrow Your Country. The stories and poems offer a wry compassionate look at individuals who cross borders, adapt to new cultures or places, and search for an identity. The protagonists in these stories often stand at a crossroads, their choices and challenges reflecting their divided selves.

Preti Taneja, who has written the foreword for the book, will introduce The Whole Kahani. Contributors will read brief excerpts from the book and publisher Lynn Michell of Linen Press will describe what attracted her to the anthology. This will be followed by a short panel discussion on the representation of minority voices in literature, after which we will be open to Q&A from the audience, and book signing.

Expect a lively impassioned evening!

There will be wine and samosas. What better way to kick off the New Year?

Tickets are £8/6 (students) and include a glass of wine or soft drink, and samosas
