Author goes back to school

Have your say

A FORMER Sheffield High School pupil is going back to the classroom to talk about her first novel.

Karen Murdarasi, who was a missionary in Albania, has drawn on her experiences for Leda, which tells the story of a young girl who goes on the run when facing a forced marriage and relies on her Christian faith to survive.

On Tuesday, she will revisit Sheffield High to talk to the girls about Albania and writing.

The author said: “I’m very excited and I hope it will help a lot of new people to learn about Albania.”

She will also be signing copies of her book in CLC bookshop, West Street, on Saturday, from 3pm to 4.30pm.

n Leda can be ordered from CLC and costs £5.99.
