Reading with Q & A :Iraqi Novelist & Poet Choman Hardi

Canterbury - Rose Lane
Tuesday 21st May 15:00

Hardi was born in Sulaimaniyah daughter of Kurdish poet Ahmad Hardi. She has published poetry in Kurdish and in English . Considering the Women (Bloodaxe) was shortlisted for the Forward Prize. After a spell teaching at St Antony’s College, Oxford, she moved back to Sulaimaniyah to run the English Department at the American University of Iraq. She will be talking about her novel Whispering Walls. Full of urgent resonance for our present moment, Choman Hardi's Whispering Walls is about a charismatic Kurdish family who confront their ghosts in the tense weeks leading up to the 2003 invasion of Iraq. The novel travels between London and Kurdistan, past and future, as each sibling grapples with a secret wound - a multilingual poet who loses her fluency in the face of love, a tender father who is haunted by the sister he failed, a journalist who must confront the truth in his own family.
