Mary Russell

Dubliner Mary Russell spent the last ten years travelling round Syria – by local bus, by bike and on foot. She knows enough Arabic to ask the way, buy some bread and complain, as tactfully as she can, about lumpy beds. My Home is Your Home, a celebration of an intriguing and complex country and of its many and diverse peoples, is a welcome antidote to the horrors of the current situation. Her numerous survival strategies, the mainstay of the solo traveller, will be on offer during her lunchtime talk on Saturday June 9th. But bring your own as well – you never know when you might need them.
