Special Conversations

Special Conversations are individual and unique dialogues that cover many types of storytelling. They can be life stories, literary events, and social reflections, all featuring people from the local community as well as international guests. Our focus here is on sharing important and different points of view in order to entertain and inform a wide range of audiences.

Local poets Robert Wood, Charlotte Guest and Shevaun Cooley discuss new work, ecology, place, belonging, identity and language.
Sisonke Msimang discusses the inner-workings of her memoir, Always Another Country: A Memoir of Exile and Home.
