Midnight’s Children’s Children: Writers on Salman Rushdie

Sep 10, 2022 - Sep 10, 2022 | 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm
City of Asylum
40 W. North Avenue
Pittsburgh, PA 15222

Salman Rushdie has been a relentless champion for free expression, using his voice to support imperiled writers for decades, and advocating tirelessly for the right of writers to create without fear of reprisal.

The bold and brutal attack on Salman Rushdie is an attack against the core values of freedom and ways of resolving differences through civil discourse, with art, literature, and journalism.

Salman Rushdie has also had profound influence on writers around the globe, and to generations of readers.

Join City of Asylum and fiction writers Amitava KumarKiran Desai, and Suketu Mehta to reflect on Salman’s legacy from his imaginative use of language and joyousness in his fiction, to his belief that writing allows us to cross borders and learn from one another, to his commitment to promoting literature that allows our society to safely grapple with social injustices.
