The Storied Past description

Of her novel Painter to the King, Amy Sackville writes, “Painting, like writing, has a peculiar and essential relationship with time, with the creation outliving the creator and their world”. Amy is joined by Esi Edugyan and Andrew Miller to discuss how fiction rewinds time and brings past worlds back to life. They ponder the insight fiction provides into yesteryear, reviving forgotten stories and rendering characters human again. 

Chair: Tali Lavi
