Celebrate International Women’s Day this March with the Bloomsbury Street Hotel’s Book of the Month – ‘The Favored Daughter’

This month the Radisson Edwardian Bloomsbury Street Hotel Book Club will be honouring International Women’s Day by offering Fawzia Koofi’s harrowing tale, ‘The Favored Daughter’ to its guests. As the first Afghani woman Parliament speaker, and noted activist for women and children’s rights, Koofi shares with us her extraordinary journey and personal struggles; from abandonment after birth, to the murders of her father, brother and husband, we observe her fierce perseverance in the face of extreme hardship, which has defined her life ever since.

Named as Book of the Month at Bloomsbury’s most coveted hotel, ‘The Favored Daughter’ movingly captures the political and cultural movement in Afghanistan, depicting so well a country that is caught between the hope of progress and the bitter truth of history. Outlining the futures and freedoms she dreamt of for all the women of Afghanistan, Fawzia Koofi gives us a truly remarkable read that is never anything less than inspiring. Sit down with a copy and a coffee this March at the Bloomsbury Street hotel, and lose yourself within these impassioned pages.

Nestled in the heart of bookish Bloomsbury, this Luxury London hotel is the perfect place to unwind and break free from city stresses. Whether you’re looking for a cultural day out to the British Museum, a shopping spree around London’s West End, or a trip down to Theatre Land to watch the latest musical, this deluxe 4 Star hotel has something to offer everyone. Book yourself into one of the Radisson Edwardian Bloomsbury Street’s stunning suites (completely with free-standing bathtub) for a bit of added luxury, or if you fancy catching up with friends then why not dine at the hotel’s sumptuous restaurant?
