Join us at the Mosaic Rooms for the launch of:

A Woman in the Crossfire: Diaries of the Syrian Revolution

Wednesday 11 July, 7pm

A haunting insider's account of Syria's bloody revolution and the Assad regime's attempt to maintain its control. The author, Samar Yazbek, was an active and outspoken critic of the regime long before the outbreak of violence. Though herself a member of the ruling Alawite minority, she has produced an unflinching, hard-edged chronicle of the uprising that has already claimed more than 9,000 lives.

Samar Yazbek will be in conversation with Omar Qattan, followed by a questions and answers session.

Samar Yazbek was born in Jableh in 1970. A highly regarded writer in Syria, her novels in Arabic, include Child of Heaven (2002), Clay (2005), Cinnamon (2008) and In Her Mirrors (2010). Her prominence as a high-profile Alawite journalist and author makes her criticism all the more searing.
