Meet the Teaching Artist
Sabina Khan is the author of The Love and Lies of Rukhsana Ali, Zara Hossain Is Here and the upcoming Meet Me In Mumbai. Her books have been featured in Oprah Magazine, Teen Vogue, The New York Times Review, NBC and the BBC. She grew up as a bookworm, but never saw herself reflected in the books she read. As an adult, she read books with her daughters and found that hardly anyone was telling stories about girls, who like her daughters, were from one culture but living in a very different one. A South Asian Muslim immigrant, Sabina was born in Germany, raised in Bangladesh and now lives in British Columbia after having lived in Macao, Illinois and Texas. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Political Science from Illinois Wesleyan University and works as an Educational Consultant. By night, she is a karaoke enthusiast and puppy wrangler.
This event is open to:
