Award-winning journalist Chitra Ramaswamy talks to bestselling author Ali Smith about her new book Homelands.

Homelands tells the story of Chitra’s friendship with 98-year-old Holocaust survivor, Henry Wuga. In some ways an unlikely duo – one born in 1970s Britain to Indian immigrant parents, the other arrived from Nazi Germany in 1939, fleeing persecution – the pair nonetheless found huge amounts of common ground, in tales of migration, racism, family, belonging, community and resilience. Their two stories – and their shared one – are woven together beautifully by Chitra, in this account of a unique friendship.

Chitra will be in conversation with Ali Smith, one of Britain’s foremost contemporary novelists and author of The Accidental, How To Be Both and her Seasonal Quartet.
