LIVE ONLINE EVENT: The DG Reading Club
At the DG Reading Club we take a fascinating long read from our archive and discuss it with the journalist who wrote it.
This time we’re looking at this fascinating story from the latest issue about how Covid-19 caused a staggering exodus of India’s workers, with hundreds of thousands fleeing cities to walk to their home villages after a national lockdown left them unable to buy food or pay the rent.
We’ll be interviewing the article’s author, Nadia Nooreyezdan, over Zoom on Wednesday 9th December from 5pm-6pm. We’ll find out how she set about researching the story, what it felt like to speak to the people who took this dangerous journey, and how the story has developed since she finished her reporting.
The event is free and open to all. Participants will be able to put their questions to Nadia.
Sign up here (only one sign-up needed per household) and you’ll receive an email with details for how to join.
