Freeman's #3: Home

Readings and Conversations with Xiaolu Guo, Nadifa Mohamed, Kerri Arsenault, Adania Shibli and John Freeman

silent green and SAVVY Contemporary are delighted to welcome back John Freeman for the third "strikingly international" (Boston Globe) issue of his magazine Freeman's. Focussing on the question what makes home, the new issue of the acclaimed anthology spotlights never-before-published stories, essays, and poetry by Edwidge Danticat, Herta Müller, Juan Gabriel Vásquez, Gregory Pardlo, Kay Ryan, Aleksandar Hemon, and many more.

In light of the current global migrant movements and daily updates about the rise of homelessness in parts of America and elsewhere, reflecting on the idea and meaning of home has gained new urgency. On the night, John Freeman will be joined by novelist and film maker Xiaolu Guo, NBCC member and writer Kerri Arsenault, London based novelist Nadifa Mohamed and Adania Shibli novelist, playwright and essayist. In their readings and conversations, the authors will talk about the necessity and wonder that is home.

The reading will by followed at around 9.30 pm by a celebration with DJ Lamin Fofana on the occassion of presenting you the new SAVVY Contemporary publication: THE INCANTATION OF THE DISQUIETING MUSE. On Divinity, Supra-Realities or the Exorcisement of Witchery (edited by Bonaventure Soh Bejeng Ndikung and Federica Bueti). This publication has been generously supported by Goethe-Institut South Africa via TURN Fund der Kulturstiftung des Bundes.
