Nayrouz Qarmout talks to Esa Aldegheri at the Edinburgh International Book Festival

Gaza-based writer Nayrouz Qarmout returned to the Edinburgh International Book Festival to launch the English translation of her book The Sea Cloak. In her event, filmed live, the Palestinian author talks to fellow writer Esa Aldegheri about what motivates her writing, and her work for the Ministry of Women’s Affairs. This was only Nayrouz Qarmout’s second trip out of Gaza since she moved there, having been born in a refugee camp in Damascus.
