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.

This book is published by Pownal Street Press, co-founded by our Atlantic Chapter Chair. You can learn more about Pownal Street Press here: https://pownalstreetpress.com/about/
