In his new new book, Lights in the Distance, acclaimed journalist Daniel Trilling draws on five years of research and reporting in order to build a portrait of the refugee crisis. A carefully written and shocking account of Europe’s border violence, Lights in the Distance is one of the most urgent publications of 2018. We’re delighted to welcome Daniel Trilling to Leeds, and to have him read from from his new work.
Daniel will be in conversation with Dima Chami, a researcher of migration literature and biopolitics at the University of Leeds.
Attendance is free, but advanced booking is essential.
You can pre-purchase Lights in the Distance here. Copies will be available for purchase on the night.
Later, following the event, we will also host Rainbow Road, a free party with no beatmatching and minimal mixing.
