Event description

Description

Come hear prize-winning writer and academic Ariel Kahn discuss the stories behind his award winning debut novel Raising Sparks, a magical-realist love story set in modern Israel. Full of the sounds, scents and flavours of the Middle East, it gives the reader access to the worlds hidden behind the headlines. Told in the voices of teenagers Malka and Moshe, Raising Sparks is a celebration of mystical texts, discovering your own inner power and the highs (and lows) of first love. It offers a glimpse of a Middle East hidden behind the headlines. It is for anyone who loves food, colour, and discovering new cultures, and still holds on to the possibility of love.

Ariel Kahn has an MA in African and Indian literature and a PhD in Creative Writing and currently lives in North London. He initially trained to be a rabbi in Israel, where he discovered a love of mystical texts such as the Zohar.

Admission: £5
