Fadia Faqir, Samira Shackle and Kamila Shamsie: The Things I Would Tell You
Durham Book Festival
Chaired by Fadia Faqir, Fellow at St. Aidan's College, Durham University.
The Things I Would Tell You is a brilliant new anthology featuring essays, fiction, poetry and drama by over twenty British Muslim women writers. Hear from users of Islamic Tinder and a plastic surgeon blackmailed by MI6. Follow the life of an actress whose dream roles turn to regular casting as a jihadi bride.
Amongst tales of honour killings and love struggling in besieged locations, we find heart-warming connections and powerful challenges to the status quo. From Algiers to Brighton, these stories transcend time and place, completely blowing away the narrow view of a ‘Muslim woman’.
Join three of the contributors, novelists Kamila Shamsie and Fadia Faqir, and journalist and writer Samira Shackle, as they discuss this groundbreaking collection.
