The new Free Word centre in the old Guardian newsroom in Farringdon, London, is celebrating its launch with a series of free events, including three debates focusing on free speech and offence based on a series of books published by Seagull Books.
It kicks off on October 7th at 6.30 with a debate featuring Kamila Shamsie (whose book is about Islam and Offence), Salil Tripathi and Irena Maryniak discussing religion and offence. On October 8th at 7.00 philosopher Brian Klug unravels the politics of Jewish identity outlined in his new book Offence – the Jewish case. And on October 9th at 6.30 Martin Rowson and me (Caspar Melville) will be talking about satire and offence and trying to remember what we said in our books.
All events are free but you need to book. More info and bookings details.
