Pierre Jarawan at the Edinburgh Book Festival

August 24 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm UTC+0

Pierre Jarawan, author of The Storyteller, Anissa M Bouziane (Dune Song) will discuss their books with author Karen Campbell at the Edinburgh Book Festival on Saturday, 24 August at 15:30.

FAMILIES IN FARAWAY LANDS

Anissa M Bouziane and Pierre Jarawan look beyond the headlines to reflect real stories of the Middle East and North Africa. Bouziane’s Dune Song echoes her own experience of watching the Twin Towers collapse as she introduces Jeehan, who leaves New York after 9/11 to find a troubled life in Morocco. In Jarawan’s The Storyteller, Samir gives up the relative comfort of his adopted German home to track down his father in Beirut. They discuss their ideas and new books with fellow author Karen Campbell.

Part of our Indigenous Voices series of events.
