Safia Elhillo: Girls that Never Die
What if I will not die / what will govern me then?
Spend an evening with award-winning poet and author Safia Elhillo to celebrate the UK publication of her poetry collection, Girls that Never Die.
In this fiercely wise collection, Safia reinvents the epic to explore Muslim girlhood, feminine shame, and violence while imagining what liberation from these threats might look like. For this very special virtual event Safia will be joined by a special guest host to lead a courageous conversation unpacking her ability to interlace the everyday traumas of growing up as a girl under patriarchy, with magical realist imaginings of rebellion, autonomy, and power. This will be a vindicating and liberating evening not to be missed!
