#BannedBooksWeek: How far can you go in speaking the unspeakable?


What is the place of the satirist in our age of controversies? The irreverent cartoonist Martin Rowson, of The Guardian and Index on Censorship magazine, joins publisher Joanna Prior of Penguin Random House for what promises to be a coruscating conversation; feathers will no doubt be ruffled.

This event is in association with Pembroke College as part of Banned Books Week and will be introduced by Index CEO Jodie Ginsberg.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Speakers:[/vc_column_text][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”89693″ img_size=”500×300″ alignment=”center”][vc_column_text]Martin Rowson is a British editorial cartoonist and writer.
