Hisham Matar: Touchstones with Razia Iqbal (Online)

Art &
Culture

Touchstones is a new series in which creative people talk about works of literature, art, places or objects that give them solace or inspiration. In each episode the guest talks us through the touchstones that provide them with inspiration, hold particular meaning or are simply compelling objects or works of art that they return to time and again. In this episode we will be joined by Hisham Matar, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Return and A Month in Siena, a meditation on the relationship between art and the human condition.

Don’t miss this chance to put your questions to him in the live Q and A.
