Key facts

Genre: Event with live speech-to-text

Author: Suresh Singh

Synopsis

In the first London Sikh biography, Suresh Singh tells the candid and sometimes surprising story of his father Joginder, who came to Spitalfields in 1949. He sacrificed a life in the Punjab to work in England and send money home, yet found himself in his element among the mishmash of people who inhabited the streets around Brick Lane.
In the book, chapters of biography are complimented with Sikh recipes by Jagir Kaur.
Suresh Singh will be in conversation with Stefan Dickers of the Bishopsgate Institute and show photographs from his family collection.
