Once a fortnight, the nomadic settlement of Madidima, deep in the Kenyan desert, awaits the arrival of a camel train laden with books. This is the Camel Bookmobile, a scheme set up to bring books to scattered nomadic tribes so tiny and far-flung they have almost become invisible. Into their world comes an unexpected wealth of literature - from the adventures of Tom Sawyer and Homer to vegetarian cookbooks and true stories of grizzly-bear attacks. Kanika devours every book she can. Her best friend is Scar Boy, considered an outcast by the rest of the tribe. They are joined by Matani, the village teacher, his wife, Jwahir, and the drummaker, Abayomi, as well as Mr Abasi, the camel driver, who is convinced that one of the camels is possessed by the spirit of his deadmother. The only condition of the Camel Bookmobile is that every book must be returned or else the visits will cease. Then one day a book is stolen

Part 1. Journalist and author Masha Hamilton visited Afghanistan twice: once in the late '90s and again in 2004. What she found during her second visit was a much more repressive atmosphere and growing fears that women's voices were soon going to be silenced for good. Today, the Afghan Women's Writing Project she founded after that trip has connected writers with women in Afghanistan who are willing to risk their own safety to write about their lives. It's not her first humanitarian effort. After hearing about a library in Africa that delivers books to remote villages by camel, she wrote The Camel Bookmobile and organized an effort to expand its reach. Masha Hamilton's new book is 31 Hours, an emotional exploration of a young man's embrace of terrorism and his mother's attempts to reconcile the son she knows with the acts he's willing to commit.
