Charlotte Higgins in conversation
Talking about her work with Peggy Hughes

Today on the podcast we’re chatting with Charlotte Higgins, who is one of our selected authors for the International Literature Showcase.

The showcase curator Elif Shafak describes Charlotte as “an author with magic in her pen. From ancient subjects she conjures living text: vast conversations about who we are today and why the stories we tell really matter.”

The International Literature Showcase is a partnership project between the National Centre for Writing and British Council.

Hosted by Simon Jones, writer and Digital Marketing Manager at the National Centre for Writing.
