The Muslim Women’s Association of Edinburgh in association with Radio Ramadan Edinburgh are having a book festival based at the lovely MacDonald Road Library! Personally I’m very excited – I remember reading Elisabeth Laird’s book Kiss the Dust about an Iraqi Kurdish girl when I was about ten, and loving it! Will also be going to Major Gordon Corrigan’s talk which also looks really interesting!
So if anyone wants to come along with me, let me know!
