Al-Saddiq Al-Raddi and Sarah Maguire at Cardiff Cental Library

On his first visit to the UK since our  2008 World Poets' Tour, Al-Saddiq Al-Raddi read alongside his translator Sarah Maguire at the Cardiff Central Library.

Cardiff Central Library has been voted one of the five top libraries in the world. One of its special strengths is the section devoted to its fourteen community languages which includes books and journals in languages such as Arabic, Hindi, Kurdish and Urdu.

We were thrilled to be invited to read at Cardiff Central Library. The reading with Saddiq and Sarah attracted a capacity audience and we were very pleased with the warmth of their response.

We are extremely grateful to Preeti Pathak, Community Languages Librarian, for her hard work in organising this event and for her commitment to communities in Cardiff.
