Future Planet: Sharon Millar at the London Literature Festival

  • Level 5 Function Room at Royal Festival Hall Southbank Centre London SE1 8XX United Kingdom (map)

Sharon Millar is an award-winning Trinidadian short story writer whose debut, The Whale House, explores grief and decay in the human and natural world, and challenges us to question how different humans are from the animals they hunt.

Millar takes part in Future Planet, at which writers and experts explore our current age of living, and what may be around the corner.

What does the future hold for planet earth? With climate change looming, and human beings having an unprecedented impact on the natural world, will earth be radically different for future generations? And can we pioneer a path to a more sustainable future?
