Amnesty International Imprisoned Writers Series

Published from Prison

Two Turkish authors who would have appeared at the Book Festival this year with new books, had they not been imprisoned, are journalist Ahmet Altan with I Will Never See the World Again and Selahattin Demirtaş, former leader of the People’s Democratic Party, with Dawn. Find out more about these unjustly imprisoned men and hear their powerful words, with readings from authors including Lilja Sigurdardottir, Paul Mason, Sarah Davis-Goff and Nadine Aisha Jassat.
