Yasmin Alibhai-Brown: Exotic England

Things to do, Talks and lectures

Join author and journalist Yasmin Alibhai-Brown as she discusses our fascination with the world beyond our small island.

Yasmin Alibhai-Brown is a leading commentator on race, multiculturalism and human rights, having won various journalistic awards including the Orwell Prize in 2002.

In this talk she explores how English history has been shaped by the 'golden thread of otherness', from our buildings and food to wider concepts like how it has powered our economy and created such a diverse society.

The discussion will also be followed by a book signing.
