Local author Nafisa Haji will read from and discuss her highly acclaimed debut novel, The Writing on My Forehead. The book follows Saira Qader, a Muslim American of Indo-Pakistani descent, who rejects the cultural traditions of her family to become a world roving journalist. Caught in a crossroad, what path will she choose? As Saira’s mother traced the words of protective prayers on her forehead, so too will this story leave its mark on the reader. No reservations are needed for this free event. Contact 510-881-7980, or www.library.hayward-ca.gov for information.
