Join Granta magazine for an evening exploring the stories that Britain is telling about itself today, just in time the the Queen's Diamond Jubilee and the London Olympics. Author Tania James (Atlas of Unknowns) and journalist Gary Younge both have new work in the latest edition of Granta: Britain. James's story of two brothers from Lahore seeking fame as professional wrestlers in London 1910 shows the tension between what one is asked to sacrifice when pursuing a dream and the bonds to family and country. Younge writes about returning to his childhood home of Stevenage, a post-war town built on the optimism of a brighter future for all now with little more to boast of than available housing.

This event is part of an international series that marks the launch of Granta 119: Britain. James's story in Granta is extracted from her new collection Aerogrammes and Other Stories.
