Eva Harlsband
 Eva Harlsband is a fiction writer working on her first novel, "Cable Street Sisters".

Eva grew up listening to stories about her émigré great grandaparents who left Riga in the late nineteenth century. These stories fired her childhood imagination.

As a  writer and performer in her twenties, Eva created a series of monologues performed in London, Liverpool and Russia. As a therapist and educator, she has worked in prisons, schools and adult mental health services.

"Cable Street Sisters", set in London's Jewish East End in 1936, follows the sisters' high spirited and radical journeys through this tumultuous year.
