Book Launch “La primera estrella de la noche”, by Nadia Ghulam and Javier Diéguez

Presentación del libro

On Tuesday 31st of May at 7.00pm the launch of the book “La primera estrella de la noche” by Nadia Ghulam and Javier Diéguez will be held. It consists of a witness of the suffering and hope of the women of the author's Afghan family. 

Women that with their everyday struggle and their intention to break conventions show admirable strength.

Her return to her hometown Afghanistan, where Nadia wants to meet her cousin Mersal and pay tribute to her deceased aunt, becomes a discovery of the hidden story of the women of her family, as well as of her roots and herself as a woman.

It is a story of investigations, family discoveries, questions that had been left without answers and, especially, a story that tells the reality that women live in societies so far away from ours: the way they overcome adversities and do not remain inactive before a supposed inalterable destiny.

Unforgettable, intense, honest and emotional, this is a story where readers will instinctly deepen into the everyday of Afghan society, into the life and feelings of these brave women and in the adventures of the main character, Nadia Ghulam.

Presentation hosted by:
Ana Maria Briongos, writer and traveller
