Meet our international guests: Sulaiman Addonia is writer and initiator of the Asmara-Addis Literary Festival in Exile. After having lived in Eritrea, Sudan, Saudi Arabia and London, he is now based in Brussels.

In addition to his literature festival, Addonia also founded a refugee academy for creative writing in Brussels. This course is for refugees and asylum seekers who always wanted to write, tell their own stories in their own voice, but never had the space or knew where to start.

Read My World asked Addonia which author he would like to bring to Amsterdam. He chose Gary Younge. In a talk moderated by Seada Nourhussen, both writers will discuss the influence of a diasporic existence on their writing.
