My Past is a Foreign Country – Zeba Talkhani with Sarah Shaffi

Thursday 27th June 18:30 at London - Gower Street

'It is discordance that has driven me and shaped me, this inability to look away, to ignore, to forget, to be mollified, and to believe that nothing out of the ordinary has happened, is happening'

Join author Zeba Talkhani in conversation with journalist Sarah Shaffi to celebrate her memoir My Past Is A Foreign Country (Sceptre), the inspirational tale of how Zeba came to claim her own narrative and construct her own identity as a feminist Muslim in the UK

In light of challenges faced, Zeba demonstrates how she fought for the right to her individuality and refused to let negative experiences define her.

Join her and Sarah as they discuss this highly-anticipated book – named by ELLE in its One's To Watch for 2019 – and celebrate self-empowerment, body positivity and mother-daughter relationships.
