Description

No Friend but the Mountains: Writing from Manus Prison by Behrouz Boochani and translator Omid Tofighian.

Since 2013, Kurdish journalist Behrouz Boochani has been held in the Manus Island offshore processing centre. No Friend but the Mountains, laboriously tapped out on a mobile phone and translated from the Farsi, is an act of survival. It is a vivid portrait through five years of incarceration and exile. At this event you will meet the translator Omid Tofighian in conversation with the author Behrouz Boochani via Whatsapp.

Suitable for ages 15 years and over.

Free. Bookings essential.
