Aida Edemariam discusses The Wife's Tale, her acclaimed book about her Ethiopian grandmother. Aged eight, Yetemengu was married to a clergyman. Her long life spanned Ethiopia’s most tumultuous years, encompassing Fascist occupation, Allied bombardment, Haile Selassie, famine, revolution and civil war. This inspiring, often heartbreaking story, offers a multilayered portrait of a fascinating nation.

Live subtitles, for people with hearing loss, will be provided in association with StageTEXT, supported by the Castansa Trust.
