|Salman Rushdie opens Writers Conference|
You're invited to join the conversation with Salman Rushdie at 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 25, at the Chester Fritz Auditorium. The event is free and open to the public.
As the opening speaker for the 2008 Writers Conference, the Great Conversation offers an opportunity for you to participate in a conversation with Sir Salman Rushdie.
Including a reading by Sir Rushdie from his works, Rebecca Weaver-Hightower (English) will facilitate the discussion between Rushdie and the audience. The focus of the discussions will come from his novel, "Midnight’s Children" (1981) which catapulted him to literary fame. This work won the 1981 Booker Prize and, in 1993, was awarded the Booker of Bookers as the best novel to have received the prize during its first 25 years. It still receives accolades for being Rushdie’s best, most flowing and inspiring work.
