Aya Khalil – The Arabic Quilt
February 15, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Gathering Volumes is pleased to welcome Aya Khalil to the store to celebrate the release of The Arabic Quilt on Saturday, February 15 at 2 pm! Come celebrate this special day with her – sweets, crafts and a photographer will be there to capture it all!
Kanzi’s family has moved from Egypt to America, and on her first day in a new school, what she wants more than anything is to fit in. Maybe that’s why she forgets to take the kofta sandwich her father has made for her lunch, but that backfires when Mama shows up at school with the sandwich. Mama wears a hijab and calls her daughter Habibti (dear one). When she leaves, the teasing starts.
Aya Khalil is a freelance journalist and educator who has taught at all levels from preschool to college. The Arabic Quilt is based on events from her childhood, when she immigrated to the U.S. from Egypt with her parents and siblings when she was one. She lives in Toledo, Ohio, with her husband, Abdalrahman, and their three children. She’s been featured in Huffington Post, Yahoo! and Book Riot. www.ayakhalil.com
