Acclaimed author Nikita Lalwani will be talking about her latest novel 'The Village' and how writers can contribute to the field of human rights. The event will be hosted by English PEN in collaboration with International Women's Day and will be followed by a wine reception, book signing and raffle.
Nikita Lalwani was born in Rajasthan, India, and raised in Cardiff. After spending 10 years in factual television, principally for the BBC, she turned her attention to writing. Her first novel Gifted was short-listed for the Costa First Novel Award and long-listed for the Man Booker Prize. She has written on human rights and data protection issues of people suffering from HIV/AIDS in India, in the anthology Aids Sutra. In 2008 she won the Desmond Elliott Prize for Fiction and donated the £10,000 prize money to Liberty. For the past three years, Nikita has been part of Liberty's policy council.
