Somali salt

Somali Talk in Whitechapel

I am speaking about my book and other Somali issues from 1-2.30 pm on Saturday 9 March at The Idea Store in Whitechapel. The address is 321 Whitechapel Road, London E1 1BU.

Please come if you can. Light refreshments will be provided and copies of my book will be available for sale and signing.

The event went very well, with lots of lively discussion afterwards, especially about the role of women in Somali society.
