an interview with laila lalami

She has hit a wide audience with her book about discoveries. Her book about the adventures of Estebanico. He was a slave from Morocco, a black slave. His name was not wellknown, hidden in a book, read by Laila. And this name set her of on a journey, a long journey, and the result we find in her book “The Moor’s Account”. 

In this article you find questions and answers and Laila is doing the answering.
