Report on the launch

The launch of Revolution Baby: Motherhood and Anarchy in Kyrgyzstan on Saturday was fantastic! As we were setting up, the room filling with two yurts and colourful craft stalls, I suddenly felt excited that it was all coming together. I had wanted to create a Kyrgyz festival where people could learn something of the country. And I succeeded. There was a real buzz in the room, people enjoying a different evening, assisted by the shots of vodka. Representatives of the Kyrgyz Embassy were very excited about the interest in their country - the picture is of me presenting a book to Gulbara Abdrazakova, wife of the Ambassador. If you would like to read more about the festival, please look at the Revolution Baby page of my website http://www.saffiafarr.com/. Having thrown a successful party, I am now just left hoping that those who went home with a book are enjoying reading it!

Launch was great. I was particularly excited to meet traditional Kyrgyz gentleman, Murat Bergbaev. He was more man than I could have imagined. Adoring Bristol girl.
