This week on Writers Unbound, host Shelley Pomerance meets Mariam Pal, whose memoir, Ballet Is Not for Muslim Girls, deals with her Pakistani-Canadian identity, and Anita Anand, whose novel, A Convergence of Solitudes, brings together Quebecers of multiple origins... Indian, Vietnamese, British and more. Two writers whose families were deeply affected by the Partition of India. We’ll also have reading recommendations from Drawn and Quarterly, the Mile End bookstore.
Invité(es) : Mariam Pal, Author Anita Anand, Author, Translator and Language Teacher Kennedy Rooke, Manager, Drawn & Quarterly Bookstore Mariana Moreno Caro, Store Coordinator, Drawn & Quarterly Bookstore
