Talking Writing: India

Wednesday 5 April 2017, 6.30-8.00pm


India has long been the subject of literary fascination, from within and without. But what does it mean to write about a country, particularly when your sense of belonging may be complicated or compromised? And as far as muses go, what particular appeal or challenges does India present as a place and culture? Manisha Jolie Amin (Dancing to the Flute), Roanna Gonsalves (The Permanent Resident), and Bem Le Hunte (There, Where the Pepper Grows) discuss their personal experiences of India as a literary influence. Chaired and programmed by editor and writer Zoya Patel.
