YOU WILL BE SAFE HERE (DAMIAN TALKS TO SARAH PERRY)
We’re delighted to welcome Damian back to Gladfest – he was the very first event of our very first festival! You Will Be Safe Here is Damian’s first novel. Set in South Africa in 1901, at the height of the Boer War, Sarah van der Watt and her son are taken from their farm by force to Bloaemfontein Concentration Camp – where the English promise they will be safe. A deeply moving novel of connected parts, inspired by the true contemporary story of Raymond Buys, You Will Be Safe Here explores our capacity for cruelty and kindness. Join Damian as he talks to novelist Sarah Perry about writing this extraordinary novel.
