Where You're Calling From: the launch of Freeman's issue on Home

Thursday 20th April 2017 7pm - 8pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Chargeable Event


Join contributors Leila Aboulela, The Kindness of Enemies, Xiaolu Guo, Once Upon a Time in the East, Benjamin Markovits, You Don't Have to Live Like This, and Ross Raisin, A Natural, for a discussion about the politics and poetics of home.

What makes a place a home, and are there times when an imagined home takes the place of a real one? What if a home is defined by who is left out? Are writers inordinately defined by where they are from, rather than where they make their home? These questions and more will animate the discussion, moderated by Freeman's editor and former Granta editor, John Freeman.

Tickets: £8 per ticket or £5 for Foyalty members. You must have your Foyalty card on you on the night to present at the door. Not a Foyalty member? Sign up for free here.
Venue: The Auditorium at Foyles, Level 6, 107 Charing Cross Road
