“I’m so in awe of women who go out everyday in quite a volatile climate since 9/11 and are still showing up and not surrendering or relinquishing their hijab.” – Sahar Mustafah
Sahar Mustafah is a daughter of Palestinian immigrants, a complex inheritance she explores in her work. Her prize-winning short story collection Code of the West (2017) is followed by her first novel The Beauty of Your Face (2020). She writes and teaches outside of Chicago.
Sahar’s book recommendations:
10 Minutes 38 Seconds in This Strange World by Elif Shafak
Highway of Tears by Jessica McDiarmid
LaRose by Louise Erdich
