What power does literature have in hostile environments? Can it do more than describe homes and spaces of belonging – can it create them? In a society overwhelmed with questions of who has the right to be heard and who doesn’t, can literature strengthen threatened communities?
Join us for a very special evening hosted by Wasafiri, uniting Black British writers from across generations in readings and reflections. More than the usual panel discussion, you will be invited to be active participants in the event, and will have the opportunity to engage in a debate on literature’s power to construct, support and redefine ‘home’ for those on the margins. With Roger Robinson, Winsome Pinnock, and Bridget Minamore.
Venue: Freeword Centre
