Index on Censorship and Foyles presents: Irenosen Okojie and Meena Kandasamy in conversation with Shahidha Bari

Tuesday 3rd March 2020 7pm - 8pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Signing, Chargeable Event

PLEASE NOTE: Due to unforeseen circumstances, this event has now been cancelled. If you have any enquiries regarding this event, please email [email protected]

Index on Censorship and Foyles are delighted to team up once more to present an evening with acclaimed writers Irenosen Okojie and Meena Kandasamy exploring literary censorship and the necessity of artistic expression with critic and author Shahidha Bari (Dressed). 

Delving into their most recent work, Nudibranch and Exquisite Cadavers, Okojie and Kandasamy will discuss the fusion of the everyday with elements of the supernatural in their fictions, and show how narratives from their own life intersect with the creation of complex, multi-layered worlds. They will also examine the barriers both have faced in their respective writing careers, asking which voices are given permission to experiment in literary fiction, and showing how the inseparable relationship between literature and politics continues to infuse and interrupt their work. 

The event will be followed by a Q&A and a book signing with both authors.

 

 

 

 

The event is part of a week of female-focused talks, discussions and debates in the run up to International Women’s Day on Sunday 8th March.
