Panel Discussions
  • Friday, 15th Nov

You had to be of an age to read Midnight’s Children in 1981 to understand its genius and explosive impact at that time, both in India and overseas. It won the Booker that year and got the Booker of Bookers in 2008. Close to 40 years after its release, a distinguished panel will discuss the book, their reactions to it, and where it stands in their assessment today. An interactive session in which the audience will have its say, too.

Panelists : Madhavi Menon, Monica Ali, Sunil Seth, Tracy Chevalier
