Book and Kitchen

I was lucky enough to be invited to give a talk with the wonderful Somali-British author Nadifa Mohamed at a very special bookshop and restaurant in London's Notting Hill Gate called Book and Kitchen

It is unlike any other bookshop I know. It's like stepping into someone's home. With inviting armchairs, cups of tea and a secret garden at the back. It's run by Muna Khogali and she hosts lots of events there - music, books, children's events and more.

With Nadifa and Ayan Mahamoud who organises the Somali Week Festival and the Hargeisa Book Fair

Next date for your diaries is the Hargeisa Book Fair 2015. The theme is 'Spaces' and it takes place in Hargeisa, Somaliland in the first week of August. Please come if you can.

Thank you Nadifa Mohamed for the photos.
