An Evening with Kamila Shamsie, Raghu Karnad & Joe Sacco

Speaking of art born of war, the novelist Kamila Shamsie writes “In the ugly moments of history – times of conflict, war, oppression or censorship – two questions are provoked over and over: what is good art in such times? And what good is art in response to such times?”

Join this group of eminent thinkers – novelists, graphic artists and journalists as they explore these questions, taking us from historical sites of war (World War II, Hiroshima) to present day sites of conflict (Palestine, Syria, Afghanistan).

Joe Sacco is one of the world’s foremost graphic novelists. He combines the techniques of eyewitness reportage with the medium of comics storytelling to explore complex, emotionally weighted situations, such as in his Eisner award-winning graphic novel Palestine.

Kamila Shamsie was named one of Granta’s ‘Best British Novelists’. Her fiction offers vivid portraits of historical moments ranging from the experiences of Indian troops on the Western Front to New York in the aftermath of 9/11. Her most recent publication, A God in Every Stone was shortlisted for the prestigious Walter Scott Prize.

Raghu Karnad is a writer and journalist living between Bangalore and New Dehli. His first book, Farthest Field: A Story of India’s Second World War was nominated for a slew of international awards.
