Author Shereen Malherbe on The Today Show

“Shereen Malherbe will be read more and more as the wind carries her original, powerful, enchanting stories, where rarely is a novel just a novel…” Yousef Khanfar.

Watch the show to find out more about The Land Beneath the Light which is due to be released in January 2022. A Palestinian reimagining of Jane Eyre, that I was inspired to write to capture my family’s history and heritage. You can also pre order now via publisher Beacon Books.

It was a pleasure to be invited to discuss my upcoming novel and my other new projects on The Today Show. It was a great experience and the team were professional and friendly. I also had the chance to meet legendary YouTuber, Super Saf who followed my interview on the show. A big thank you to designer @Ramzag for her wonderful tatreez on my abaya that she hand stitched to celebrate the upcoming release. If you are interested in Palestinian embroidery, you might be interested in checking out my second children’s book, The Girl Who Stitched the Stars.

If you didn’t manage to catch me on the show, you can watch it here via Islam Channel. Enjoy!
