Photos from the Irrawaddy Literary Festival

 

It was wonderful to present 'Another Man's War' at the Irrawaddy Literary Festival in Mandalay, and to take the story of Isaac Fadoyebo and his forgotten African colleagues back to Burma, where it all happened in 1944. For more on the story behind the Festival- it's trials, tribulations and triumphs- read this excellent article  by Margaret Simons. (And see below, Festival patron Daw Aung San Suu Kyi with organisers Jane and Andrew Heyn, looking forward to some post-festival reading!)
