This Funzing Experience:
Secret Boat Talks are a new series of intellectual talks at London's famous floating book boat, Word on the Water.

On this cozy 100-year-old Dutch barge on Regent's Canal, you will sit next to a wood-burning stove with other curious Londoners; to learn about a fascinating subject and challenge your perspectives.

The Talk: Revolution in Iran - Girl With a Gun

Award-winning writer Karen Attwood talks about the story of writing Girl With A Gun: A Teenage Freedom Fighter in Iran which is being published by Unbound. She will be covering Revolution in Iran, the story of peshmerga fighter Diana Nammi, the collaborative process of writing someone else's memoir with them, women's rights and many other fascinating topics.
