Derby Book Festival 2 on June 2, 2019
The second of Patrick’s events for Derby Book Festival will feature him and his old friend, novelist Marina Lewycka reading their contributions to the latest volume of Refugee Tales. This project is a brilliant initiative of the Gatwick Detainees Group using fiction to bring alive the stories of people who have endured the UK’s uniquely horrible process of indefinite detention of asylum seekers before being granted leave to remain. After their readings, Patrick and Monica will be in conversation with the project’s guiding light, Anna Pincus. 11am. Full details and booking will be available through the festival website after April 11.
