Banipal Book Club Meeting

Banipal Book Club Meeting: The Banipal Magazine of Modern Arab Literature (UK) will hold its next book club event, where instead of having a discussion about one book, the evening will look at all 29 entries for the 2015 Saif Ghobash Banipal Prize for Arabic Literary Translation. With 26 novels and 3 poetry collections in the running, this may be an impossible task in a couple of hours, but many have been reviewed in the media and online, and 27 of the entries are already in the BALMAL Library. The winner will be announced mid-January next year, with the award ceremony in February 2016. This is a free event, just let us know if you are coming by emailing​. Taking place on 10 Decembrer, 2015 at the premises of the Arab British Centre, 1 Gough Square, London EC4A 3DE​.
