Reading Women

Reading Women releases new episodes every Wednesday. Each month features two episodes on the same theme—one highlighting a range of titles and one discussing two titles more in depth—and two author interviews with women writers whose work we’ve loved.

Ep. 64 | The Moor’s Account and A Very Large Expanse of Sea

For our month on Ramadan Reading, Kendra and Sumaiyya discuss The Moor’s Account by Laila Lalami and A Very Large Expanse of Sea by Tahereh Mafi.
