Edinburgh International Book Festival. Rania Abouzeid & Åsne Seierstad

  • Spark Theatre on George Street Edinburgh UK (map)


With the war in Syria entering its 7th year, two authors deliver a sharp analysis of the human cost of the conflict. Rania Abouzeid has been reporting from the frontline and in No Turning Back recounts the secret deals which armed, then betrayed, the people’s uprising. In Two Sisters Åsne Seierstad has written the true story of siblings who left Norway to fight in the war and the father who attempted to bring them home.
