Live streamed from London, UK

In best-selling author Elif Shafak’s The Island of Missing Trees, star-crossed lovers Greek Christian Kostas and Turkish Muslim Defne navigate the violence of the partition of Cyprus to eventually find safety in London. Elif’s last novel, 10 Minutes 38 Seconds in This Strange World, was short-listed for the Booker Prize. This stunningly original follow-up is a beautifully crafted story of love, loss and belonging, infused with the humanity and heart that is the hallmark of Elif’s acclaimed writings.
