An Evening with Nadia Hashimi

This event is presented by Friends of the Library, Montgomery County

Join us for a special evening event presenting international bestselling author Nadia Hashimi. Her debut novel, The Pearl That Broke Its Shell, depicts the life of a young Afghan girl whose family decides to dress her as a boy until she is of marriageable age. Hashimi’s second novel, When The Moon Is Low, chronicles the perilous journey of an Afghan family as they flee Taliban-controlled Kabul and fall into the dark world of Europe’s undocumented.

Hashimi was born in the United States to Afghan parents who left Afghanistan in the 1970s before the Soviet invasion. Afghan culture and its people are the centerpieces to her novels. She has two more books releasing in 2016, A House Without Windows and her first young adult novel, One Half From The East.

The evening will feature an intimate hors d’oeuvre and wine reception catered by Ridgewells while touring the beautiful art exhibitions in the historic Strathmore Mansion. Guests will have an opportunity to meet the author and have their books personally signed. Copies of the books will be available to purchase on-site.
