"I’ve come to the Asia House Bagri Foundation Literature Festival quite a few times over the years. With my first book out this autumn, it felt like a very natural place to be coming as a speaker and a writer for the first time."
"I find this platform very important in terms of bringing people together. People of all backgrounds, introduced to each other through the power of words, through the power of stories and art..."

"I’ve heard about the festival for a number of years now and I’ve heard about the quality of the people that participate in it so I’m quite happy to be here and be part of this fantastic and thrilling festival."
“So much resonates in this discussion... This is why it’s so key to have more diverse stories told and why events like this are so important.”
