New speaker added: Selma Dabbagh

Novelist Selma Dabbagh will be joining the Women Writing Today panel on the 16th March. 

Her first novel, Out of It, explores the relationships between a Palestinian family living across Palestine, the UK and the Gulf. It brings to life the struggles of young people trying to live their lives under the occupation, as they negotiate their personal relationships and their relationship with Palestine itself. 

‘Driven, fast-paced, edgy … A narrative of Gaza, it brings a very welcome new voice and new consciousness to the Palestinian Story’ Ahdaf Soueif, Guardian, Books of the Year 2011, 26 November 2011
