Dove Tales is delighted to be taking part in Big Lit for the first time. Huge thanks to Chrys Salt and Richard McFarlane for inviting us.
Our event was to feature Palestinian poet Iyad Hayatleh, but Iyad has had to travel to Lebanon for a family emergency.
Instead Robin Yassin Kassab has kindly agreed to step in at short notice to discuss his latest book, Burning Country: Syrians in Revolution and War with Dove Tales's Jean Rafferty.

Their conversation is followed by readings from the new Dove Tales anthology, A Kind of Stupidity, a collection of poetry and prose about war. The readers include several local writers who contributed to the anthology, including Chrys Salt, Mary Smith, Anne Dunford and Chik J.Duncan.
