Calling all Calgarians! Join this exciting launch of On the Edge of Being by Afghan-Canadian author Sharifa Sharif.

The world that Afghan women inhabit in this memoir illuminates the split between body and voice — a split that has wrought a devastating impact on the women of Afghanistan. The daughter of a progressive Afghan governor, Sharifa Sharif observes from an early age that life for women — both within and beyond the walls of their homes — is neither simple nor fair. As she navigates the rocky terrain of what it means to be a woman in Afghan society, Sharif candidly connects her own troubling experiences with those of girls and women around her.

The event will be hosted on April 25th at Owl’s Nest Bookstore from 7pm-8:30pm. CW4WAfghan Fund Development Manager, Melissa Bottoms will moderate this event. Free tickets are available and walk-ins are still welcome if you are unable to RSVP.
