Cornish-based writer Sara MacDonald will discuss the themes in her book, The Long Road from Kandahar. Her son was sent to ﬁght in Afghanistan in 2009 and Sara’s book tells of the impact of war and separation on families. It is also an exploration of friendship and trust that transcends cultural diﬀerences for the English and Pakistani boys at the heart of her story.
