Description from Cambridge Literary Festival:
"Part of the Cambridge Spring 2022 Literature Festival, Fri 27 May - 05 Jun. Watch anytime.
My Pen Is the Wing of a Bird is a collection of extraordinary voices: the first anthology of short fiction by Afghan women. To celebrate this landmark collection, join us for a series of readings from the book as well as a discussion on the importance of hearing marginalised Afghan voices.
We’re delighted to be collaborating with English PEN to welcome one of the book’s translators, Parwana Fayyaz, who will be joined by Will Forrester, Translation and International Manager, and author, feminist academic and activist, Kübra Gümüşay.
My Pen is the Wing of a Bird: New Fiction by Afghan Women is published by MacLehose Press. Untold Narratives CIC works with writers marginalised in society by community or conflict. To find out more and support their work visit: untold-stories.org"
