About the Event

Join Damian Barr (You Will Be Safe Here), Jo Browning Wroe (A Terrible Kindness) and Ingrid Persaud (Love After Love) at this virtual Faber Academy event.

In conversation with Louisa Joyner, Associate Publisher at Faber, these three guest authors will discuss how to maintain sensitivity when writing about real life events, how fiction offers a specific kind of engagement with the world that we live in and how writers encounter historical events – both publicly politicised and those that are more personal, intimate – in their work and in the ways that it’s published.
