About

Panel: Salman Rushdie & Nayantara Sahgal
Moderator: Ahdaf Soueif

FREE, no tickets required

Beginning with writers' first published words, their views bear influence on others. What role do history and politics play in a writer's imagination? Is religion important? Gender, class, caste? Should literature preoccupy itself with any of these? Are writers by their nature obsessed with all of these? Salman Rushdie is a world-famous author of landmark novels such as Midnight's Children, The Moor's Last Sigh, Haroun and the Sea of Stories, and most recently, Luka and the Fire of Life. Nayantara Sahgal is an acclaimed political commentator and author of nine novels and nine works of non-fiction.
