Cass lecturer speaks at Writeidea festival

Sunny Singh, author and lecturer in creative writing at The Cass, speaks at East End literature festival.

Sunny Singh, teacher in Creative Writing and English Literature BA at The Cass, will be interviewed on stage by Rachel Shabi about her novel Hotel Arcadia at the Writeidea Festival 2016, part of East London's Festival of Reading. Writeidea introduces Sunny's book below:

What happens when war comes home? Or when the news reporter becomes news itself? Are love, friendship, honour, courage mere words in an increasingly fragmented, violent world? Join writer, activist and academic, Sunny Singh as she talks about her latest novel, ‘Hotel Arcadia’. Described as ‘addictive and penetrative,’ the literary thriller explores identities, politics, love and survival in an increasingly uncertain world. In a wideranging discussion with writer, journalist and broadcaster, Rachel Shabi, the session will cover politics of fiction and the challenges of fictionalising lived realities.

The event will be British Sign Language Interpreted.

The talk is free, but places must be booked in advance on the Writeidea Festival.
