Speaker information

Lisa Appignanesi, author

In her acclaimed memoir, Losing the Dead, and again in her novel The Memory Man Lisa Appignanesi excavates the terrain of family memory in Poland during World War 2. The mists and fetishizings of personal memory through time are counterpointed here with shifting ‘official’ histories and what may sometimes be the virtues of forgetting. She discusses memory and forgetting through family life, reads from her work and shows Ex Memoriam, a prize winning film by director Josh Appignanesi, which forages in the same terrain of family memory.
