“Partition is always going to be a thing that matters to me and influences me. When your people have gone through such historical violence, you cannot shake it.”

Rising US poet and screenwriter Fatimah Asghar brings her powerful debut collection If They Come for Us to the UK for the first time. Navigating the trauma caused by borders on both a personal and political level, Asghar details her experiences of a world divided by invisible partitions and reminds us of the inevitable consequences of ignoring history.
