The latest episode of Tales from The Leeds Library features Dr Emily Zobel Marshall - Author, poet and Reader in Postcolonial Literature at Leeds Beckett University. We talk about Emily's work with Carnival, her work with the charity Remember Oluwale and their planned memorial sculpture garden featuring work by artist Yinka Shonibare. We also talk in depth about Emily’s most recent book American Trickster: trauma, tradition and Brer Rabbit – a fascinating study of the cultural journey of Brer Rabbit from its contested origins in African folklore to an internationally recognisable trickster figure.
