9/11: How Remembering Tells Our Future

9 September, 7 p.m., Frontline Club, 13 Norfolk Place, London W2 1QJ. Tickets from £10. (Each ticket includes a copy of Granta 116.)

In the past decade, the events of September 11, 2001 have been told, retold and reflected on. But how has this story been told to support certain agendas? And how does how we remember a historical event impact our perspectives? Granta publisher Sigrid Rausing, Granta contributing editor and chinadialogue.net editor Isabel Hilton and openDemocracy editor Tony Curzon-Price discuss the media, memory and 9/11. In association with openDemocracy. Click here to book tickets.
