Gabriela Cabezón Cámara, Thordis Elva & Courtney Sina Meredith with Jackie Kay
Sat 19 Aug 8:45pm - 9:45pm
21st Century Women
Today, Jackie Kay brings together guests from three remarkably different continents. Argentinian novelist Gabriela Cabezón Cámara’s Slum Virgin tells the story of Cleopatra, a transvestite who renounces prostitution after the Virgin Mary appears before her. Icelandic writer Thordis Elva explains what made her decide to re-enter a dialogue with the man who had raped her 20 years earlier. Meanwhile, New Zealander Courtney Sina Meredith talks about her debut book of short stories Tail of the Taniwha.
