Nadifa Mohamed: The Orchard of Lost Souls

Saturday 2 March, 6pm-7pm

Al Baraha 1, InterContinental, DFC

It is 1988 and Hargeisa waits. Whispers of revolution travel on the dry winds but still the dictatorship remains secure. Soon, and through the eyes of three women, we will see Somalia fall.

And as the country is unravelled by a civil war that will shock the world, the fates of the three women are twisted irrevocably together.

Nadifa Mohamed was born in Hargeisa and was exiled before the outbreak of war. In The Orchard of Lost Souls, which won the 2014 Somerset Maugham Award, she returns to Hargeisa in her imagination.
