Manchester Literature Festival
In his latest short story collection, ‘Liberation Day’, George Saunders considers what it means to be human and a member of communities whose actions impact each other. Through inventive scenarios including an underground amusement park and a household with reprogrammed humans, George comments on current society, questioning whether this is the right way to live.
Join us for what promises to be an unmissable conversation with a master of short stories on his first visit to the UK in five years, and his only event outside of London. George is the author of ten books including the Booker Prize winning ‘Lincoln in the Bardo’, ‘Tenth of December’ and his recent exploration of Russian short stories, ‘A Swim in a Pond in the Rain’. Hosted by writer Kate Feld.
