Description

The highlight of our two-day conference on the centenary of the abolition of indenture in the British Empire is an evening with an outstanding panel of writers from across the indentured labour diaspora. Join us and our co-hosts the Commonwealth Writers as we hear readings from award winning writers Ananda Devi (Mauritius), Gaiutra Bahadur (Guyana), Lakshmi Persaud (Trinidad), Mary Rokanadravu (Fiji) and Agnes Sam (South Africa). An informal dinner, included in the ticket price, will be served after the lecture. We are grateful to the Commonwealth Writers and the John Coffin Memorial Fund, for making this exciting literary evening possible.
