Christopher Hope – Edinburgh International Book Festival
August 16, 2018
SEARCHING FOR THE SOUL OF A NATION
Thirty years after his celebrated memoir White Boy Running, acclaimed South African writer Christopher Hope is here with The Café de Move-on Blues, an attempt to understand his post-Apartheid nation. He’s joined by leading indigenous Australian writer Bruce Pascoe, whose extraordinary, award-winning book Dark Emu demonstrates that the Aboriginal people of Australia enjoyed a sophisticated society whose history has been radically underplayed in colonial retellings. Chaired by Julianne Schultz.
