Samuel Shimon
Samuel Shimon and Margaret Obank have been translating Arab writers and publicising their works through the magazine Banipal for decades. In 2020, they launched the Spanish version with a clear objective: to make it an open window through which "the breeze of the soul and the conscience of the Arabs" can enter so that the Spanish reader can get closer and get to know the rich production of Arab literature

Samuel Shimon: "Banipal is a platform for dialogue, mutual understanding and knowledge of cultures"
