An evening with Qaisra Shahraz
Saturday 13th January 18:30 at Birmingham
We are very excited to invite you to an evening in store with Qaisra Shahraz discussing her collection of short stories, The Concubine and The Slave-Catcher.
Ten powerful stories set on several continents and at different periods in history. A well-meaning Abolitionist learns the sordid and violent truth about slavery from her African servants in Boston USA. The sundering of India and Pakistan in the 1947 Partition is revealed when a Muslim boy is adopted by a Hindu family during the chaos of mass migration. A young university student finds her engagement broken off because her fiancé’s family disapproves of her Western attire.
We hope you can join us for this wonderful event.
