Secret Histories: Damian Barr with Sarah Perry
19.00 Wednesday 3rd April 2019
Inspired by real events, You Will Be Safe Here uncovers a hidden colonial history and present-day darkness while exploring our capacity for cruelty and kindness. This is the debut novel from Damian Barr, whose awarding-winning memoir, Maggie & Me, was about coming of age and coming out in Thatcherís Britain. He is the creator and host of the marvellous Literary Salon.
We are thrilled that Damian will be with us on the evening before the publication day of You Will Be Safe Here. He will be talking about his novel with Sarah Perry, author of Dulwich Books favourites, The Essex Serpent and Melmoth. Both You Will Safe Here and Melmoth consider the links between hidden legacies of history and the present. Donít miss what is sure to be a fantastic discussion about this wonderful debut novel and about how fiction can be used to illuminate the past.
The event will start promptly at 19.00 and finish by 20.30
Location: Dulwich Books, 6 Croxted Rd, Dulwich, SE21 8SW
