Fane Online Live Stream with Fatima Bhutto

Online Event
Dates and times

1 Nov 2020 6:30pm

Online Event

What does it mean to be a citizen? With nationalist politics on the rise around the world, what do we really mean when we speak of extremism? How are these narratives shaped by race and identity? In an age obsessed with “post-truth”, where do the true deceptions lie? 

Fatima will deliver a speech originally written for the Sydney Writer’s Festival but never broadcast, reflecting on Islamophobia, Western Feminism and race. 

Fatima Bhutto is the bestselling author of Songs of Blood and Sword, a memoir about her father’s life and assassination, and the highly praised The Runaways, an unflinching and moving portrait of radicalism, belonging and Muslim identity.

Don’t miss this important and thought-provoking evening of live conversation.

Fane Online is a curated series of broadcast-quality live-streamed events, giving you the chance to watch exclusive shows with celebrated authors, actors and podcasters, all from the comfort of your own home.

We are partnering with some of the country’s top regional theatres and independent bookshops, and are pleased to be able to offer two ticket packages. The ‘book and ticket’ package includes a unique ticket for the live stream, and a copy of The Runaways, worth £8.99, deliverable to any UK address. The standard ‘ticket’ package consists of a unique ticket for the live stream only.

The event will initially be broadcast on 1 November at 18:30 UK time. It will be available to view up to 48 hours after the event has ended and can be accessed worldwide.
