Small Wonder - REFUGEE TALES: SPEAKING VOLUMES, image from event to be held on 30 September 2017

Last year’s Refugee Tales session at Small Wonder made an enormous impact. Modelled on Chaucer’s The Canterbury Tales, the second volume communicates the plight of refugees and the experience of those who, having sought asylum, are indefinitely detained. Re-telling personal stories, Neel Mukherjee and Marina Warner illuminate individual suffering and survival.

The iniquities of Detention Centres are in the news. Two of our top writers re-tell the harrowing stories of recent immigrants.

Marina Warner, who re-creates ‘The Mother’s Tale’, is a multiple prize-winning author of fiction, history, criticism and studies of myths.

Neel Mukherjee, who re-tells ‘The Soldier’s Tale’, is an award-winning novelist whose new book is A State of Freedom.

Anna Pincus has worked for Gatwick Detainees Welfare Group for ten years.
