Al-Saddiq Al-Raddi at Africa Writes Festival in Exeter
Bookbag & Sacred Grounds
Join us in Exeter to hear Al-Raddi – one of the leading African poets writing in Arabic today – reading from this newly published poetry collection as part of Africa Writes Festival.
Al-Raddi is joined by translators Bryar Bajalan and Shook, and the reading will be followed by a conversation about collaboration, writing processes and A Friend's Kitchen's powerful engagement with exile and displacement.
