Launching the Chinese Holy Woman at the Manchester Museum

 

I was hosted by the Confucius Institute, University of Manchester by Karen Wang and Tabea in the Manchester Museum, Kanaris Theatre.

With my Chinese readers reading extracts from my Chinese The Holy Woman.

Reading from my novel “Typhoon” and talked about my Chinese tour. The process of getting my book published, the cover and what was lost in translation including my name as there are no Chinese characters for my name Qaisra Shahraz. I have a new name on my Chinese Holy Woman, – its lovely and sounds really nice.

I also talked about my interfaith work and promoting messages of peace and harmony with the banner “Spread Hummus Not Hate”. We posed with the banner around the museum including with the dinosaur, the elephant and outside.
