The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

Two sisters, Warda and Sundus Yassin, discuss how books and poetry have impacted their relationship and reflect on their favourite sisters in literary texts.

Sundus is an original member of TLC and Warda is a school teacher who has published the poetry collection Tea With Cardamom, which won the New Poets Prize in 2018.

This event took place as part of The Lit Collective Sheffield Online Festival (23–25 July 2020) and is available to watch back below.
