Reading: 9/14, Royal Festival Hall, South Bank Centre

Hey everyone...I'm leaving to London early next week to do a reading from the new collection, Qissat. Here are the details:

WHEN: Thursday 14 September 2006, 7:45 pm

WHERE: Purcell Room, South Bank Centre, Royal Festival Hall, London

WHAT: "At the UK premiere for this collection of stories by Palestinians living under occupation and throughout the diaspora, Liana Badr, Randa Jarrar, Adania Shibli and Huzama Habayeb join us to read from and discuss their writing."

Go here for more details.

Bloggers, writers, etc.: Please spread the word.

I'm super excited, for several reasons, which are all pretty obvious. First, it is delightful that I'm getting to read with three amazing, brilliant writers. Second, I went to a British school for 8 years, but have never been to England. I'm super excited to see it. Third, fourth, fifth...I could go on forever, but I'll stop there for now.
