Inspired by the Brontes
I recently had the pleasure of attending Bradford Literature Festival 2022 to discuss my Bronte inspired novel, The Land Beneath the Light. A Palestinian reimagining of Jane Eyre that has now been nominated for the Palestine Book Awards 2022.
The panel was chaired by Sofia Rehman who kindly stepped in to replace Sally Bayley who was due to chair the panel.
I was joined by the wonderfully talented, Isabele Greenberg who wrote and illustrated the beautiful, Glass Town and Tasha Suri who was there to discuss her remix of Wuthering Heights.
It was a pleasure to take part and afterwards we had the opportunity to meet some of the audience and sign their books.
The enduring legacy of the Bronte sisters shows how important women’s writing is and how it can capture an era and provide intimate insights into female lives.
You can find out more about why I wrote The Land Beneath the Light by reading my latest interview at The Muslim Vibe.
