In this special event, the distinguished British-Turkish novelist and activist Elif Shafak launches her new novel '10 Minutes 38 Seconds in This Strange World'. This is a wonderful opportunity to hear this inspired and inspirational speaker and writer talk about her views of women, clothing, culture and identity in her own life and in the characters of her many novels, from 'The Bastard of Istanbul' and 'Three Daughters of Eve' to her new novel. To what extent do politics, geography and religion fundamentally influence the identity, behaviour and appearance of women? Join the great ‘universal storyteller' Elif Shafak and journalist Rosie Goldsmith in a discussion ranging from the Middle East to Europe, the back streets of Istanbul to the streets of post-Brexit London.
