Unbound: From Lewis to Lahore at Edinburgh Book Festival

From Lewis to Lahore is an Edinburgh Book Festival event that began with a Highlight Arts journey travelling from Scotland to Pakistan and back again, refuelling at the Lahore Literary Festival – an adventure involving telling and translating stories, poetry, pictures and music.

The collaboration will be encapsulated by creatives from Scotland and Pakistan in this special Unbound. From Scotland, storyteller Ian Stephen, poet Vicki Husband, illustrator Kate Leiper and Admiral Fallow’s Sara Hayes. Representing Pakistan, is storyteller Shazea Quraishi, illustrator Mehreen Fatima and musician Sara Kazmi.

Thanks to the British Council, the event will travel to the Outer Hebrides later in August.
