‘Reading Between the Lines’, 2 October 2018 at Y Theatre, Leicester as part of Everybody’s Reading Festival. Many thanks to Steve Sweeney Sarya Tunc, Gaylan Nazhad, Hannah James and Grace Petrie for their contributions to the evening
Steve Sweeney from ‘Morning Star’ and Gaylan Nazhad photographer of ‘101 Beads: Kurdistan in War’ spoke inspiringly about their own experiences of reporting in difficult circumstances. We also heard about the work of Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
Hannah James and Grace Petrie added to the theme with their own songs.
This was a very interesting evening – it’s not necessarily the news you hear about … often there is much more information that does not come to mainstream attention to protect private interest and Government agendas.
The evening was supported by Everybody’s Reading Festival, and Leicester NUT – many thanks to them also, and to the Y Theatre.
