[73] Samira Ahmed, author of Mad, Bad & Dangerous to Know

“For too long our stories haven’t been written and these women, who have accomplished so many things that we’ll never know, were relegated to the shadows.” – Samira Ahmed

Samira Ahmed is the New York Times bestselling author of Love, Hate & Other Filters, Internment and Mad, Bad & Dangerous to Know. She was born in Bombay, India and grew up in the suburbs of Chicago in a house that smelled like fried onions, cardamom and potpourri. A graduate of the University of Chicago, she’s lived in Chicago, New York, and Kauai where she spent a year searching for the perfect mango.
