Chicago Humanities Festival - Salman Rushdie

Wednesday, Jun 16, 2021 from 7:00pm to 8:00pm


Salman Rushdie: Languages of Truth

In Languages of Truth Booker Prize-winning author Salman Rushdie (Quichotte) reflects on his long and complex relationship with storytelling. Through this compilation of seminal essays, criticism, and more recent speeches Rushdie explores the intersections of truth, language, art, and life-and some of his quintessential preoccupations: censorship, migration, and multiculturalism. At CHF, Rushdie is joined by poet Srikanth (Chicu) Reddy for a conversation about these conceptual crossroads and the lessons literature illuminates.
