Broadcaster Anita Rani’s memoir The Right Sort of Girl recalls growing up in 1980s Yorkshire with her Punjabi family, trying to navigate her Indian world at home and the British world outside her front door, and feeling that she didn’t fit in anywhere. Nikesh Shukla (Brown Baby) considers – sometimes with humour, sometimes with rage – the world his young daughters are growing up in, and how to raise them with joy and optimism. They talk to Bradford Literature Festival Director Syima Aslam about bridging two cultures; about race, feminism and how to empower the next generation of young girls.
