Orwell and Empire (at Pushkin House)

from £6, online options available

Pushkin House, 5a Bloomsbury Square, London

Join Phillipe Sands, author of The Last Colony (shortlisted for the Orwell Prize 2023), Douglas Kerr, author of Orwell and Empire, and Kojo Koram, author of Uncommon Wealth (shortlisted for the Orwell Prize 2022) as they explore first what Kerr calls Orwell’s “creative quarrel” with imperialism, and how it can shine a light on contemporary debates about the legacy of the British Empire, which Koram and Sands have both explored in their Orwell Prize-listed books. This event is hosted by our partners, Pushkin House.
