Ticketing: Pre-booking essential

Taking place on the seventh anniversary of the bombing of the Al Mutanabbi Street book market in Baghdad, this will be one of many events around the world remembering the attack, placing the street in wider context and presenting the work of poets, film makers, playwrights and photographers connected with Iraq.

Following the suggestion of Beau Beausoleil, coordinator of the Al Mutanabbi Street Starts Here Coalition, the evening is dedicated to the 'disappeared' of Iraq.

Presented by Dr Alan Ingram (UCL Department of Geography) and Hassan Abdulrazzak (UCL alumnus and playwright).
