A “Join the Conversation” Event with Aisha Abdel Gawad

Author of Between Two Moons

Join us for a fascinating, live event with Connecticut author and educator Aisha Abdel Gawad as she discusses her new novel, Between Two Moons, with WSHU’s Senior Reporter Ebong Udoma. Their talk will be followed by an Audience Q & A.

Aisha was interviewed by Ari Shapiro on All Things Considered, and Between Two Moons was an NPR Book of the Day. It's a coming-of-age story about teenage twins in Brooklyn that takes place during one month of Ramadan. It draws inspiration from Aisha’s own experience of growing up under the specter of post-9/11 Islamophobia as the daughter of Muslim immigrants.
