Gill will explore the stories of the mighty women of Greek mythology—the warriors, witches, monsters and mothers whose journeys have left an indelible mark in Western societies. In facing Medusa's petrifying power and delving into Circe's transformative sorcery, she will reveal the feminist power behind these mythical characters, offering an ancestral source of inspiration for the women of today. Gill will also discuss her experiences as a British Indian poet and her Instagram platform—sharing what it's like to have half a million followers and the support of celebrities such as Cara Delevigne and Alanis Morissette.
The event will be followed by a Q&A and book signing.
This event is part of the 2019 Asia House Bagri Foundation Literature Festival.
