All About Eid with Sarah Shaffi

an Eid Special


Thursday May 13th at 11.00am

Streamed live and on catch up on  Kirklees Libraries’ YouTube channel, Facebook and Twitter

Join Sarah Shaffi journalist, editor and interviewer to hear all about her book All About Eid – a celebratory event of Eid ul Fitr (12 – 13 May), with activity fun galore! 

Bursting with crafts and recipes, fun fill-in activities and facts about the Eid celebrations observed by over ONE BILLION Muslims twice a year, children can:

create magical lanterns
design and draw their own henna patterns
plan for the wonderful year ahead
make delicious treats inspired by countries and cultures all over the world – from candyfloss cocktails to mouth-watering fried dumplings!
This is the ULTIMATE book of Eid with simple and clear instructions for hours of fun!

With a shiny foil cover, this is a wonderful gift for every child.




As a freelance writer, Sarah has bylines at Stylist, Phoenix,, The New Arab and more. She specialises in books, but also writes about politics, race, and pop culture (and the intersection of all three).

She regularly chairs events with authors, and has interviewed Booker Prize-winner Bernardine Evaristo, poet Nikita Gill, and authors Jojo Moyes, Candice Carty-Williams and Liane Moriarty, among others, in front of live audiences. She’s a regular interviewer at Cheltenham Literature Festival, Southbank Centre and Asia House Literature Festival.
