Putney author, broadcaster and authority on Syria will be giving a talk
Diana Darke, Putney author, broadcaster and authority on Syria will be giving a talk which will raise fund for Wandsworth Museum.
Woven into the story of buying and restoring an ancient courtyard house in the heart of Old Damascus are layer upon layer of Syrian history, philosophy, art and architecture. The richness and diversity of Syrian society are explored, while its natural creativity and humour are revealed through its characters.
