Man Booker Prize winner Ben Okri is renowned for writing that is both poetic and profound. He speaks of storytelling as a transformative act of great mystery and inspiration, of stories possessing a rare power. Stories can conquer fear, you know. They can make the heart bigger.
Okri challenges us as readers to imagine and then reimagine the world. We can redream this world and make the dream come real. Human beings are gods hidden from themselves. To mark the publication of his major new novel, The Freedom Artist, we are delighted that Ben Okri will deliver the inaugural Adelaide Writers’ Week Opening Address.
