15. Sisonke Msimang in Conversation with Minelle Mahtani
The Vancouver Writers Fest presents

One of the most exciting contemporary female voices, Sisonke Msimang, joins us with her internationally lauded book Always Another Country, a memoir of a nomadic childhood in exile and a beautiful and uncompromising story of her political and feminist awakening. Always Another Country documents her coming of age in North America and Africa set against a background of racism and political upheaval. Msimang’s experiences made her aware of the importance of writing one’s story and determined that “story is the antidote to bias.” She demands, “if a story moves you, act on it.” Her TED talk of the same name has been viewed more than 1.3 million times. So act on this: watch the video then read her book. You’ll want to hear more from this voice for our time.
