The Value of Nothing‘s Raj Patel and Other Penguin Authors at the Time of the Writer Festival

The StreetThe Value of NothingThis month we’re excited about the annual Time of the Writer Festival, which takes place in Durban from 14 to 19 March and brings together writers from around the world in a week-long programme of stimulating literary events.

“Freedom of Expression” will feature as an underlying thread within the festival and audiences can expect to hear the opinions of leading writers on creative processes, which inform their writing, as well as on the enabling or constraining forces of political, social and environmental contexts within which they write.

Penguin authors attending the festival include Value of Nothing’s Raj Patel, Ellen Banda-Aaku, winner of the Penguin Prize for African Writing for Patchwork (due for release in June), as well as Biyi Bandele, author of The Street.

For more information on the festivities, visit the Centre for Creative Arts website.
