Marking the 70th anniversary of Indian independence, we bring together British and Indian writers to explore writing and place from two lowland eastern regions with renowned and radical literary heritages: Kolkata and Norwich. Sarah
Perry’s The Essex Serpent was named Waterstones Book of the Year in 2016 and sees a small village beset by an ominous threat from the sea. In multi-award-winning Lucy Hughes-Hallett’s Peculiar Ground, years of war results in the building of walls and a false sense of safety, while Anjali Joseph’s The Living reflects on everyday life in Norwich and India, and the challenges in living well.

Event runs: c. 1 hr
