Raja Alem in conversation at Waterstones Piccadilly – 18th August
11th August, 2016
Join us at Waterstones Piccadilly on 18th August for an evening with the award-winning Saudi Arabian author Raja Alem. Raja will be in conversation with literary critic Alex Clark, to celebrate the publication of her novel THE DOVE’S NECKLACE in the English language.
Originally published in Arabic in 2011, THE DOVE’S NECKLACE explores the secret life of Mecca through a surreal and challenging murder mystery, and led to Alem being the first female author to be awarded the International Prize for Arabic Fiction that same year.
Tickets to the event are free and can be reserved via the Waterstones website.
