This event honours the memory of writer Caroline Chisholm (MA Creative Writing, 2013), who was a valued member of the CNW community.
It will feature a reading from the best dissertation submitted by an MA student at the Centre in 2016, alongside a reading by a writer whose fiction is close in spirit to Caroline's own novels in progress and her work at Greenpeace.
Hisham Matar is a Libyan writer whose debut novel In the Country of Men was shortlisted for the 2006 Man Booker Prize.
