Cat amongst the pigeons Sunday Times Children’s Books editor, Nicolette Jones, will talk to author Fabio Geda about how he came to write the remarkable true story of ten-year-old Enaiatollah’s five year journey alone from Afghanistan to Italy. His ordeal took him through Pakistan, Iran, Turkey and Greece enduring unimaginable hardships and challenges, and young actor Samuel John’s brilliant readings from the text will bring alive this universal story of courage in the face of fear.
