NOT HOSTED TALK: In Conversation: Linton Kwesi Johnson and Caryl Phillips

Poet and political activist, Linton Kwesi Johnson joins Caryl Phillips, novelist and academic, in conversation. Both writers have inspired generations with thoughtful and incisive writing which, in one way or another, looks at notions of identity. Johnson’s rhythm-infused lyrics and Phillips’s concise prose explore racial oppression and question what it means to belong – and together they’ve changed the landscape of writing in Britain and beyond. Join them in this rare conversation chaired by cultural journalist and broadcaster Maya Jaggi.

Tickets cost Price: £7.50 / £5 concessions and can be purchased by phoning customer service here: 01937 546060.
