PalFest organizers announced today that, to raise money for PalFest 2011, they will be holding an auction of donated artworks. The auction will take place at SOAS “Brunei Building” in London on March 31. It’s set to begin at 6:30 p.m. and run until 9.

Short talks from two tremendous authors are  planned—Hanan al-Shaykh and Ahdaf Soueif—and PalFest organizers promise that it “should be a really pleasant evening.”

For more information, you can visit the PalFest website or Facebook page, and you can RSVP to events@palfest.org.
