Part of Edinburgh International Book Festival

All over the world, groups of people remain under threat from the mainstream population of their country. These persecuted minorities all share rich traditions of storytelling and today’s readings include writing selected by the Uyghur people of China, the Palestinian diaspora, the Kurdish people and Scottish Gypsy Travellers.

Chaired by Scottish PEN, the readers include Jim Aitken, Gabriela Cabezón Cámara and Iyad Hayatleh.
