Please join us for Pasadena's first Young Adult Open Book event featuring 2022 Young Adult National Book Award-winner Sabaa Tahir, author of All My Rage and the New York Times bestselling An Ember in the Ashes series. Tahir will be in conversation with local Pakistani-American artist and writer Sehba Sarwar, author of Black Wings. In All My Rage, the narrative shifts from teens in present-day California to their parents’ early years in Pakistan. The book is nuanced in its inclusion of Pakistani, Muslim, and California desert cultures and speaks to something many share: the experience of being in an inescapable situation where you have no good choices.” Please RSVP for this event, sponsored by Polytechnic School and the Pasadena Literary Foundation. Registrants will receive information about the location and parking at least 24 hours before the event.
