Join us to celebrate the publication of Han Kang's The White Book, including a reading and discussion with Kang and Granta senior editor Max Porter.

From the winner of the Man Booker International Prize for The Vegetarian, South Korean author Han Kang’s The White Book is a meditation on a colour, on the tenacity and fragility of the human spirit, and our attempts to graft new life from the ashes of destruction. Written while on a writer’s residency in Warsaw, a city palpably scarred by the violence of the past, the narrator finds herself haunted by the story of her older sister, who died a mere two hours after birth.

A limited number of copies of The White Book are available to purchase for £10 from our bookshop and Han Kang will be signing copies at this event.

In partnership with Bristol Festival of Ideas
