Adelaide Festival says
.: ADELAIDE WRITERS' WEEK SPECIAL EVENT :.

When Hisham Matar was nineteen and studying in England, his father was kidnapped in Qaddafi's Libya. Hisham never saw him again, nor did he ever give up hope that he would.

Hisham's extraordinary memoir, The Return: Fathers, Sons and the Land In Between tells the story of his return twenty-two years later to search for his father.

Join the 2017 Pulitzer Prize winner for a conversation about his brilliant portrait of a nation, a people on the cusp of change and a family negotiating love and loss.
