German Book Tour

In November I travelled to Germany to speak to Deutsche Welle in Berlin about the release of my book and deliver lectures in Hamburg and Husum. Thanks to the Heinrich Boll Foundation and the German Refugee Council for supporting these events, and to everyone who came. It was great to meet members of Germany's Kurdish and Yezidi diaspora communities and chat about the book.

This month I also appeared on NPR's Weekend Edition show with Lulu Garcia-Navarro which you can can listen to here, and the Big Issue published an author Q & A.

Podcast interview and copies of With Ash on Their Faces arrive

This week I appeared on the Corsham Institute's Countering Violence Extremism podcast where I read a short excerpt from my book and chatted to Charles Kriel. Listen here. I also spoke to the Huffington Post, Svenska Dagbladet and an Arabic review of the book appeared over at Al Akhbar.

Pre-orders of With Ash on Their Faces are arriving in Italy, the UK, Greece and Turkey. Here's a picture of photographer @andreadicenzo with her copy of the book in Istanbul, taken by @ewither.
