Word Factory #51 – Four Voices: Shukla, Otoo, Guo & Hisayo Buchanan
Sat 25 February 2017, 18:00 – 20:00 GMT
WORD FACTORY PRESENTS:
Citizen: The New Story.
This is the first of a series of readings and discussions in our Citizen: The New Story series – in association with Writing Our Legacy & Spread the Word.
FOUR VOICES: reading and conversation with Sharon Otoo, Xiaolu Guo and Rowan Hisayo Buchanan, chaired by Nikesh Shukla. PLUS: Cathy Galvin announces the winners of the 2017 Apprentice Award.
In The Good Immigrant, Nikesh Shukla wrote: “I talk in Guj-lish, my normal voice and white literary party.” At a time of cultural and political change, with arguments raging about British values and identity, what voices dominate in literature? What do BAME writers have to say about that identity within the UK and overseas? This salon, through readings and discussion, will explore how can language hurt and liberate
Salon limited to 70 places.
