How can writers engage with the reality of their country, beyond easy clichés or postcard-like visions? In this conversation, award-winning Sardinian author, journalist, and activist Michela Murgia talks about the relationship between realism and the myths of one’s homeland, and how a writer or an intellectual can be vocal about the most compelling political issues of their time. Michela Murgia will be joined by another special guest, award-winning author Ben Okri, making this a truly extraordinary conversation.
This event will be in English and partly in Italian with English translation provided.
