Etaf Rum
Wednesday, April 1, 2020 - 6:00pm


Enjoy this complimentary event and discuss great books! A book discussion led by top bookseller Karin Barker begins at 6pm, followed by a 30 minute skype session with Etaf Rum to discuss her book "A Woman Is No Man," now out in paperback!

In her debut novel Etaf Rum tells the story of three generations of Palestinian-American women struggling to express their individual desires within the confines of their Arab culture in the wake of shocking intimate violence in their community--a story of culture and honor, secrets and betrayals, love and violence. 

The daughter of Palestinian immigrants, Etaf Rum was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. She has a Masters of Arts in American and British Literature as well as undergraduate degrees in Philosophy and English Composition and teaches undergraduate courses in North Carolina, where she lives with her two children.  A Woman Is No Man is her first novel.
