Anita Sethi: I Belong Here

Tickets £12 including a copy of the book (£16.99 RRP) available for free collection from The Grove Bookshop in Ilkley or posted to your address for £3.50. This book is published on Thursday 29 April and will be available to either collect from The Grove Bookshop or will be sent to you after this date according to your preference.

Anita Sethi was on a journey through Northern England when she became the victim of a race-hate crime. The crime was a vicious attack on her right to exist in a place on account of her race. After the event, Anita experienced panic attacks and anxiety which made her long for wide open spaces, to breathe deeply in the great outdoors.

Anita’s journey through the natural landscapes of the North is one of reclamation, a way of saying that this is her land too. Anita transforms her personal experience into one of universal resonance, offering a call to action, to keep walking onwards.

Interview by journalist and creative facilitator, Kirran Shah.

The event will feature an audience Q&A hosted by The Grove Bookshop’s Mike Sansbury. Please send any questions you would like to ask Anita Sethi about her new book to info@ilkleylitfest.org.uk. The deadline for questions is 9th April and we’ll try to ask as many as time allows.

Presented in partnership with The Grove Bookshop.
