Join our host, Ferrukh Faruqui and Zarqa Nawaz, author of the novel Jameela Green Ruins Everything, as they discuss her latest salvos against the still-reverberating fallout of cultural and geographic colonialism.

It’s a glorious, laugh out loud romp that skews everything from Pakistani immigrant parents, book clubs, and that whole war on terror thing, while forcing us to consider the complicated, confusing, often crazy world in which we live.

What: Jameela Green Ruins Everything: Zarqa Nawaz and A Comedy of Errors.
Who: Host Ferrukh Faruqui in conversation with author Zarqa Nawaz
When: Sunday, March 27th, 2022 at 7pm ET
