The current guest writer in Stavanger City of Refuge, Afghan-born poet Norwan, will read from her poetry and be interviewed as part of the opening night events of the Nobel Peace Center's 'In Afghanistan' exhibition in Oslo. The exhibit will run from Friday, 10 February at 6 pm through 22 April 2012. The aim of the exhibition is to show a different side of this misunderstood country.
'In Afghanistan' will also feature the work of photographers Lynsey Addario and Tim Hetherington, the latter of whom was killed by a granade explosion in Libya in 2011. A documentary about daily life for three Afghan girls, filmed specifically for the exhibit, will be shown as well.
