MLF presents Esi Edugyan

Wednesday 17th October 19:00 at Manchester - Deansgate

Imagine being an eleven-year-old field slave on a Barbados sugar plantation. Imagine being chosen to work with the plantation master's brother on a new contraption called the Cloud-cutter. Imagine discovering you have a talent for drawing and for science. Imagine these things taking you across the world from the icy wastes of the Canadian Arctic and the mud-drowned streets of London, to the eerie deserts of Morocco. Imagine trying to understand freedom while never truly being free. Acclaimed Canadian author Esi Edugyan (Half Blood Blues) reads from the fascinating tale of Washington Black (longlisted for the 2018 Man Booker Prize for Fiction) and discusses this remarkable journey with host Anita Sethi.

Tickets £7/£5
