Kamila Shamsie

When: Sat., Aug. 26, 4:30-6 p.m. 2017

Join us for a reading with Kamila Shamsie who will be reading from her newly-published novel Home Fire. A contemporary reimagining of Sophocles’ Antigone, Home Fire is an urgent, fiercely compelling story of loyalties torn apart when love and politics collide. Home Fire is a heart-breaking story of love, family and loyalty that explores the complexities of nationalism, religious extremism and bigotry, ultimately asking: What sacrifices will we make in the name of love?
