Hi Brittlepaperians,

Here are some events you can attend this weekend. All are virtual except one.

Meeting ID: 681 018 4392 Passcode: SOBAFest /3

Time: 8-9 EST / 1-2pm BST / 2-3 CEST | Register here.

This panel will delve into the experiences of Ahmed Val Bin El Dine and Ishraga Mustafa, two African writers publishing in the Arabic literary sphere. What challenges have they faced, if any? What lessons have they learnt? What is their view on translation? We will also discuss their journey as writers, focusing on their works published and what is to come. The session will be moderated by Sawad Hussain.

If you’ve ever felt guilty about taking time out for yourself whilst you worry about the planet burning…

Or found yourself stepping away from activism because of the emotional toll of the work…

Or perhaps unsure about how self-care could make a difference to how you feel when the climate emergency is so overwhelming…

Then this event was planned with you in mind.
