In Conversation with Yassmin Abdel-Magied

This Saturday I have the pleasure of joining author Yassmin Abdel-Magied to discuss her most recent book, Talking About a Revolution.

Yassmin is one of the most influential young writers of her generation. A dialogue with her is always an exchange of the upmost pleasure, and it will be exciting to be in conversation with her – about why she is ready to move on from talking about certain life experiences, process of political growth and development as a writer and activist, her love for cars, hobbies and her faith. This book is beautifully written, topical, timely and engaging with such a clear authorial voice. I really look forward to speaking with her, and celebrating her work with the audience at London’s first consciously intersectional bookshop, the Common Press.

If you’re in London, come and join us!
