Be My Guest: Priya Basil in conversation with Meera Sodha
Wednesday 20th November 19:00 at London - Crouch End
Priya Basil, novelist, essay-writer and co-founder of Authors for Peace, will be joining us to discuss her new book Be My Guest with Meera Sodha.
The dinner table, among friends, is where the best conversations take place – talk about the world, religion, politics, culture, love and cooking. In the same way, Be My Guest is a conversation about all these things, mediated through the sharing of food.
We live in a world where some have too much and others not enough, where migrants and refugees are both welcomed and vilified, and where most of us spend less and less time cooking and eating together. Priya Basil explores the meaning and limits of hospitality today, and in doing so she invites us to consider that how much we have in common may depend on what we are willing to share
Priya Basil is a novelist and essay-writer whose work has been nominated for the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize, the Dylan Thomas Prize and the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award. She is also co-founder of Authors for Peace, a political platform for writers and artists.
Priya will be interviewed by chef and food writer Meera Sodha, bestselling author of cookbooks East, Made in India and Fresh India.
