Come along and listen to Fatima Bhutto discussing her novel TheShadow of the Crescent Moon with Harriett Gilbert.

The Shadow of the Crescent Moon was Bhutto’s first novel and is set in Mir Ali, a small town in Pakistan close to the Afghan border. It is the story of five young people trying to live and love in a world on fire. Bhutto was born in Kabul, Afghanistan, and grew up in Syria and Pakistan. The Shadow of the Crescent Moon was longlisted for the Bailey’s Women Prize for Fiction. Her second novel is The Runaways.

Tickets are free but must be booked through the usual channels. Once the event is full, standby tickets will be available. The recording will take place between 5pm and 6pm.

IMPORTANT: Please be sure to submit a question to the author if you are attending the event. World Book Club depends on audience participation and the greater the number of questions we have sent into us before the event, the richer the recording will be. Please send your question(s) by March 20 to karen.holden@bbc.co.uk
