Event Details

Sebastian Faulks & Romesh Gunesekera

2023 marks thirty years since the publication of Sebastian Faulks’ Birdsong. Romesh Gunesekera’s Reef enters its third decade in 2024. The world of fiction-writing has evolved and expanded enormously since the 1990s – have the expectations of audiences changed? We bring together two literary giants to celebrate novels which have delighted readers for decades in a discussion chaired by former Galle Literary Festival Curator Jill Macdonald.

With special thanks to Commercial Bank for kindly sponsoring this event.
