Home Fire Author Talks Candidly

CITY COLLEGE OF NEW YORK–Young women, mostly City College students, crowd into a room in Shepard Hall to hear Kamila Shamsie’s talk about her novel,  Home Fire, and what it means to be a Muslim and a person of color in a white society.

Shamsie’s book tackles the challenges of Pakistani Muslims living in Great Britain and tells the story of two sisters and a brother who goes to Pakistan to join ISIS. She spoke at “Beyond Identity” an event hosted by The Department of Women & Gender Studies and The Policies Of Sexual Violence Initiative in partnership with PEARL.
