15:30 – 16:30 You Will Be Safe Here – Damian Barr

Walter MacFarlane Stage

Award-winning writer, columnist and salonnière Damian Barr discusses his much anticipated debut novel You Will be Safe Here with author and journalist Georgina Godwin.

‘This would be an achievement for a third or fourth novel; for a first, it’s an astonishing one. Barr’s handling of his bravely chosen material – the conjoined shames of British and Afrikaaner history – is deft and the results will haunt you.’ Patrick Gale 

‘Completely gripping and profoundly moving‘ Maggie O’Farrell
