Lucy Morgan Edwards, author of The Afghan Solution (Pluto, 2011), was at India’s Jaipur Literary Festival at the end of January, discussing the future of Afghanistan in a couple of panels. Jaipur is India’s biggest and arguably most spectacular literary festival, and Lucy’s events drew crowds hitting the 1,000 mark (or so she estimates!)
Below are a few pictures from the event.
