The Book of Birmingham, readings and discussion chaired by MP Jess Phillips
Tuesday 16th April 18:30 at Birmingham
After the readings, there will be a discussion chaired by Labour MP for Birmingham Yardley, Jess Phillips, around themes central to the anthology such as immigration, race and class in the city, and more broadly about the writing of Birmingham, what the city looks like today and how we might shape its cultural future. This will be followed by a Q&A session.
‘Above all, this anthology strives to give those who have grown up in Birmingham, who have lived or are living in Birmingham, the chance to represent themselves and to push back against stereotypes and derision from without.’ – Kavita Bhanot, editor
