Writing Self & Strength

Sisonke Msimang is an acclaimed nonfiction writer whose work focuses on race, gender and democracy. In her debut memoir, Always Another Country, she reflected on what it was like to grow up in exile – exploring the meaning of belonging and home with great power and lyricism.

Join Sisonke Msimang for an insightful keynote and Q&A session to learn how to wield your own personal histories into moving, deep, political stories that extend beyond the self.
