Leila Aboulela & Alessandro Gallenzi (2015 Event)
Born in Sudan and for many years a resident of Aberdeen, Leila Aboulela injects a healthy dose of Scotland into
her latest novel, The Kindness of Enemies. It opens in Scotland in 2010, and then journeys back to a time of war in 19th century Russia. Meanwhile Alessandro Gallenzi’s ambitious novel The Tower opens in the digital age, and time-travels back to Giordano Bruno and the Holy Inquisition in Rome. Watch both authors in conversation talk about their creations.
