Albania is in many ways a major culture, endowed with strong national myths, heroic figures, folkloric practices, and cultural touchstones that, for better or for worse, allow Albanians to obscure internal differences and historical complexities in favour of a master narrative.

Elsie was a writer, translator, interpreter, and specialist in Albanian studies. If you're interested in Albanian folklore, its folktales and legends will transport you to its haunted history. The Kindle edition is £1.99.

We will explore Albanian's beautiful folktales and enjoy its cuisine in an Albanian restaurant.

In order to secure a seat, you need to send me a bank transfer of £10 as soon as you join the list, which you will get back on the day (no Paypal payments). For those of you who would like to enter a contest in the form of a quiz, you can send 1 more pound, the prize will be a book of our future readings. We will not form teams for the quiz but play individually in a rotation basis.

You can buy the book on Amazon:
