Synopsis

Writers consider walls in literature and in our lives

30 years after the fall of the Berlin Wall, writers consider walls in literature and in our lives for Banned Books Week. With the resurgence of interest in the boundaries and borders of nations across the world, is the symbol of that wall still potent in 2019? Do walls and censorship go hand-in-hand? And are there places – now or in the future – where a wall could mean safety rather than segregation?

In partnership with The Royal Society of Literature

This event will have live subtitles by Stagetext working with MyClearText.
