The Arab British Centre, in partnership with Telegram and English PEN, Presents THE LADY FROM TEL AVIV

Monday 1st July 2013 6:30pm - 8:30pm 107 Charing Cross Road Literary Event, Free Event

Tonight Rabai al-Madhoun discusses his novel The Lady from Tel Aviv, which was shortlisted for the International Prize for PEN logoArabic Fiction 2010. Both a meditation on the nature of fiction and an incisive exploration of the effects of Occupation on a people, The Lady from Tel Aviv focuses on the intersection in the lives of an Israeli actress and a Palestinian writer whose chance encounter on a plane exposes the chasm between them in the land they both call home.
Rabai al-Madhoun is one of the Arab world's prominent literary figures and tonight appears in conversation with British-Palestinian writer Selma Dabbagh, author of Out of It, in an evening organised by the Arab British Centre, with the support of English PEN and Telegram Books. After the discussion you'll have the opportunity to continue the conversation over complementary drinks.

Venue: The Gallery at Foyles, Charing Cross Road
Tickets: Free, visit to reserve your place
