KAMILA SHAMSIE AND GILLIAN SLOVO AT LAURA DEVINE SOLICITORS
On the evening of 28 February 2018. Kamila Shamsie and Gillian Slovo, well-known writers of literary and non-fiction, gave readings on behalf of Last Rights. Kamila read from her Booker-short-listed novel ‘Home Fire’ and Gillian read from her most recent novel ‘Ten Days,’ after which there was a most interesting and ‘sparky’ Q and Q session followed by a raffle of the authors’ books in aid of Last Rights that raised, with a ‘top up’ on the part of Laura, at least £1000.00 bringing us nearer to our target. This will go toward the work on our draft protocols at the May meeting on Lesbos.
A huge thank you to Laura and her team, to Gillian and Kamila and to all of you who joined us and who contributed.
If you were unable to be with us but would like to donate (we are still short of our target and every little helps), please go to the My Donate page. Don’t forget to fill in the form if you qualify for gift aid. Thank you.
