Tuesday 6th December, 7.00pm
at The Gallery and Library of The Arab British Centre.

Banipal celebrated the year's achievements with a gathering of its supporters, editors, contributing authors, translators and reviewers. The evening's entertainment was provided in the form of readings from the 2011 editions (40, 41 and 42), performed by some of this year's contributors- Hinrich van Haaren, Mohammed Mesrati, Susannah Tarbush and Stephen Watts.

The night was a great success, with guests enjoying the chance to discuss the Arab literary scene with fellow enthusiasts and to meet like-minded writers, translators and publishers, amongst others.
