Attend in person
Meet citizens of exile in two startlingly topical novels about the traumas of displacement. Serbian writer and poet Vesna Goldsworthy follows a daughter of the elite from a Soviet satellite state to London in the 1980s. But freedom swiftly leads to heartbreak in Iron Curtain. Kim Thúy’s Em is a sensitive portrait of children swept up in the Vietnam War. The two come together to explore departure and belonging with poet Heather H Yeung.
