Quatrefoil Library, 220 E Lake Street, Minneapolis MN 55407
Our next meeting is November 1! The book selection will be Corona by Bushra Rehman
Razia Mirza is a Pakistani woman from Corona, Queens, who grew up in a tight Muslim community surrounding the first Sunni masjid built in New York City. When a rebellious streak leads to her excommunication, she decides to hit the road. CORONA moves between Razia's childhood and the comedic misadventures she encounters on her journey, from a Puritan Colony in Massachusetts to New York City's Bhangra music scene. With each story, we learn more about the past she's escaping, a past which leads her to constantly travel in a spiral, always coming closer to but never quite arriving home.
