Doris Lessing was born on 22nd October 1919. Her career spanned many of the most significant events of the twentieth century and she produced work in a wide variety of forms and genres, making her a major but still undervalued literary figure.

A hundred years almost to the day after her birth, this event brings together a panel of contemporary women writers to discuss Doris Lessing's work and her legacy. Rachel Cusk, Professor Lara Feigel and Emma Claire Sweeney will read from their own work and discuss Lessing's lasting influence
