Highly respected writers will help us investigate the idea of ‘being at home’ in the modern city on 13th October. There was no safe home for David Oluwale in Leeds. The idea for a memorial to David Oluwale came from Caryl Phillips. He’ll be reading from the chapter about David in his book Foreigners. The poet, film-maker and artist Imtiaz Dharker and the writer Glyn Maxwell will be reading too —  at the wonderful Leeds Library.
