EIBF 2019: In a Desperate Situation – Fiction & Poetry

17:30 — 18:30
Baillie Gifford Corner Theatre, Baillie Gifford Corner Theatre, Edinburgh International Book Festival

‘The situation is desperate’ are the last words of Daphne Caruana Galizia’s final blog post, published the day she was killed.

Every day around the world writers continue to share their words despite great personal risk. They suffer censorship, violence, imprisonment and, sometimes, death. Join authors for readings on the theme, curated and chaired by Ricky Monahan Brown of Scottish PEN and features: Naomi Wood, Sara Stridsberg, Toby Faber and Niviaq Korneliussen.
