LIVE ONLINE EVENT: The DG Reading Club
At the DG Reading Club we take a fascinating long read from our archive and discuss it with the journalist who wrote it.
On Wednesday 17th February we’re looking at this extraordinary piece about the blast that devastated central Beirut in August last year. We’ll be interviewing the Beirut-based author, Daisy Mohr, who was on the scene 20 minutes after the explosion occurred. We’ll be talking to Daisy about the resilience and solidarity of Beirut’s residents, the battle for accountability in a country plagued by political corruption, and what it’s been like living in a shattered city at a time of economic crisis and the Covid-19 pandemic.
The event takes place between 7-8pm on Zoom and is free and open to all. Participants will be able to put their questions to Daisy. Sign up here (only one sign-up needed per household) and you’ll receive a message including details of how to join.
