Leila Aboulela – Words Matter; A Seasonal Viewing Treat

This week Women’s Education Partnership is delighted to share with you the video link to Words Matter, In Conversation with groundbreaking British-Sudanese author, Leila Aboulela.

Words Matter was originally aired on Eventbrite, as part of our celebrations of International Literacy Day, on 8th September this year. We would like to thank everyone who attended this event and so kindly donated to our educational programmes. We are incredibly grateful to Leila for her kindness in giving us her time.

We felt this inspiring educational resource should be available to be enjoyed and shared by all over the festive season. See too:

Words Matter with Leila Aboulela

Every donation to our programmes or time kindly given to follow our work are blessings we never take for granted.

In Words Matter, Leila Aboulela spoke with British-Sudanese journalist, Adela Suliman about childhood moments that shaped her imagination, the many sources of inspiration for her work, her affection for Scotland, its quirky connections with Sudan, as well as the daily challenges writers face.

Leila radiates sincerity and warmth in her conversation with Adela and you feel immediately at ease in her company as she draws us into her life and responds to viewers’ questions. She drops some tantalizing hints on her latest literary project and treats viewers to a ten-minute reading of her moving short story, Farida’s Eyes, published in Elsewhere, Home.

Enjoy Words Matter here:
