DESCRIPTION

What constitutes a story and who gets to tell it? In a world that is simultaneously globalised and fractured, how can one use language to reclaim conversations and identities? Man Booker Prize winner and festival headliner Marlon James, author of Black Leopard Red Wolf and A Brief History of Seven Killings, ruminates on the power of language and stories in considering diversity and representation.
