Tahmima Anam

Reformations 12: Borders

Hay Festival 2017, 

In a time of international turbulence and insecurity; a time when the world is seeing migrations of people escaping from the immediate terrors of war and the disruptions of climate change; at a time of multiple and fluid identities, the novelist from Bangladesh interrogates the notion of national borders. Where do you draw the line? She re-imagines the walls and checkpoints as places of welcome and refuge. Anam is the author of A Golden Age, The Good Muslim and The Bones of Grace. Chaired by Oliver Balch.
