Arkan Asaad, author of "Starless Nights" among other titles, visited our Year 7 students digitally on Monday 5 October!
The students have taken on the novel during their first theme, and are reading with great interest. We were treated to a lecture about his life journey, a culture of honor, and about coming here as a refugee and integrating into the Swedish society. A gripping story was delivered with a sense of humor and a good deal of self-distance. The students sent him questions, which were answered at the end of the session, and Arkan promised to continue answering the ones he didn't have time for! We are taking digitalization one step further with this lecture, and were quite pleased with how well it worked.
