” I Don’t Want To Talk About Home” Suad Aldarra in conversation with Ruth Medjber
Friday 14th April 2023 7.00pm
I don’t want to talk about home is Suad Aldarra’s strikingly honest memoir , documenting her journey from Syria to Ireland via Egypt. It is not a memoir about war and destruction. It’s not about camps or boats. It’s about the enduring love for a home that ceased to exist, building a life out of the rubble, and the parts of yourself you lose and find when integrating into a new world.
Dublin born and globally based , Ruth Medjber is an accomplished photographer and author. In 2022 Ruth found her radio voice and began hosting “Spotlight” , a weekly arts and culture radio show on Dublin City FM.
This is a free event and refreshments will be served. To secure your ticket book on eventbrite or contact us on 087 4087722
