Free Speech Cafe: Equality for Black British Writers?

English PEN Bulletin

No Room At The Table: Making Inclusion a Reality for Black British Writers

with Courttia Newland, Jonathan Heawood and Joy Francis

What are the barriers for black British writers working today? Why is it that not enough black British writers are being published? Are literature festivals celebrating the diversity of writers in the UK enough? What is the free speech issue here? What’s the role English PEN can play to support all writers in the UK?

For this and more, join us for the latest Free Speech Café, where the hottest issues of the day are discussed and debated. We are delighted to partner up with Words of Colour Productions for this event.

A Cinema Masterclass with Claude Lanzmann at the Institut Francais

Claude Lanzmann, director of the landmark film Shoah, has played a unique role in France's intellectual scene throughout his life.  His memoir The Patagonian Hare (translated from the French by Frank Wynne) has been a phenomenal success in France and has been translated into ten languages. The book will be published in English next month by Atlantic, supported by a grant from English PEN's Writers in Translation Programme.  To co-incide with the release of the book, Lanzmann has agreed to take part in a unique masterclass dedicated to his cinematographic work, illustrated with film clips. His appearance at Jewish Book Week has already sold out, so don't miss the chance to hear Lanzmann speak about his inspirational lifetime achievements, passions and commitments!  Claude Lanzmann will be in conversation with Michael Etherton (UK Jewish Film).
