This Land Is Our Land: Suketu Mehta in Conversation with Salman Rushdie

Suketu Mehta and Salman Rushdie

Join internationally bestselling authors Salman Rushdie and Suketu Mehta for a discussion about of one of the world’s most pressing issues.

While humans have always migrated, we have never done so on the scale seen today; and we have also never seen more pushback against this movement. Immigration is among the most heated issues in America and will play a central role in the November elections. According to Mehta, we need more migration, not less, during the pandemic. In what is sure to be a lively exchange, Rushdie and Mehta will change the way we view migrants not only in the U.S., but the world at large.
