When was the first time you saw yourself represented in literature? If you’re a person of colour, it is rare to find a fictional character who looks like you and who you identify with. Join three writers as they read a letter to the character they first saw themselves in, discuss why representation matters, and break down whiteness in the literary canon.
With Flora Chol, Vanessa Giron and Hannah Morphy-Walsh
