Sue Guiney and to hear more about her new book, A Clash of Innocents. Guest of honour was Princess Bopha Devi who was joined by the likes of Ambassador Roland Eng, artist Chhim Sothy and many more to celebrate the launch of the 20-page magazine, together with four of the Anjali youngsters who had traveled from Siem Reap to read extracts of their short stories to the audience. The magazine arose from a creative writing program that Anjali, who provide free food, healthcare and education to street children, had arranged and which Sue Guiney had led only last week. The author, whose novel is set in Cambodia and centers around an orphanage in the capital, is now researching a second book, which will be based in Siem Reap. You can find out more about the good works going on at Anjali House here.
