UK independent publisher And Other Stories is hosting an Arabic reading group this autumn/winter, focussing on three Syrian novels recommended on the European Society of Authors’ Finnegan’s List, a list of under-translated, under-recognized works. And Other Stories has translated and published several books on the back of recommendations from previous reading groups, so perhaps one of these will make the pick? The books we’ll be discussing are:
Excerpts in English are available on the And Other Stories website along with information about obtaining Arabic copies of the book.
Once you’ve read the excerpts and/or the books, please share your comments online on the website, or come to our reading group meet-up in London: Monday October 7th at 7pm at the Royal Festival Hall /Southbank, where we’ll be discussing The Epidemic.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to get involved or receive further information about the above books.
