"Syrian Speaks" was an event held on 29 January gathering novelist and playright Nihad Sirees, poet Golan Haji, and novelist and critic Robin Yassin-Kassab to talk about their work and about the current situation in Syria.
Two reviews of the event can be found on Arabic Literature (in English) :
- one by the prolific Sarah Irving, who has three books to her Lit belt: The Bradt Guide to Palestine (Bradt, November 2011), a biography of Palestinian Leila Khaled (Pluto Press, May 2012) and Gaza: Beneath the Bombs as co-author (Pluto Press in January 2010)
- one by myself here.
