Pola Oloixarac: Tackling Tokenism in Literature

Hailed as one of Granta’s Best Young Spanish-language Novelists, Pola Oloixarac is a hugely exciting author. Her newest novel Mona, tells the story of a young Peruvian writer who finds herself tokenised: her identity used to showcase the ‘diversity’ in her university department, at international festivals and conferences. Oloixarac shares her wickedly cynical work deconstructing literary circles with us today. Chaired by writer and journalist Tomiwa Folorunso.
