The delightful Onjali Q Raúf is back in Dubai to bring us this moving story of missing histories and the power of friendships. Join her as she tells us about the inspiration for not only this novel but also the other heroes she brings to us in her writing. Characters with big hearts weave their way through the stories, and on stage Onjali will encourage us all to speak up for the underdogs. This event is for the whole family!

Onjali Q Raúf writes thought-provoking and gripping novels which tackle the issues of today, including The Lion Above the Door and The Boy at the Back of the Bus. She has won many awards for her writing.
