What does it mean to be a citizen? With nationalist politics on the rise around the world, what do we really mean when we speak of extremism and how are these narratives shaped by race and identity? In an age obsessed with “post-truth” where do the true deceptions lie?
Fatima Bhutto is the bestselling author of Songs of Blood and Sword, the memoir about her father’s life and assassination, and the highly praised The Runaways, an unflinching and moving portrait of radicalism, belonging and Muslim identity. She will be joined for an evening of conversation and debate, by Gary Younge, editor-at-large at The Guardian and author of Another Day in the Death of America. With a reading by Mahira Khan.
As an exclusive preview alongside this event, Fatima Bhutto's new book - which will be officially relesaed in October - will be available for purchase at the NT Bookshop and she will be signing copies.
Tickets: £15 - £45
