EIBF 2019: The Situation is Desperate – Journalism & Non-Fiction

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

‘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. Today’s readings include journalism and non-fiction chosen by Scottish PEN. Chaired by Jane Archer of the Writers At Risk Committee, readers include Dina Nayeri, Muhammad Khan, Xinran Xue and Nick Thorpe.
