ILKLEY LIT FEST: Iraq + 100 and Hassan Blasim

14 Oct 2016 - 7.30PM

For Iraq + 100, Comma Press posed a question to contemporary Iraqi writers: what might your home city look like in the year 2103 – exactly 100 years after the disastrous invasion by the Allies. Escaping the politics of the present, contemporary Arabic writers offer their own spin on science fiction and fantasy. Hassan Blasim, the winner of the 2014 Independent Foreign Fiction Prize, will discuss and read from this unique anthology.

When: Friday 14th October, 7.30pm
Where: Ilkley Literature Festival, St Margaret's Hall
Price: £5/£3 concessions
