An Interview with Olive Witch Author Abeer Hoque

Mon., Mar. 20
Abeer Hoque was born in Nigeria to Bangladeshi parents and moved to Pittsburgh when she was thirteen. She struggled to find her place in America, and eventually moved to Bangladesh on her own, where she still didn't quite fit in. She details her multicultural growing-up and coming-of-age story in a new memoir called Olive Witch. Abeer will be at CLP - Main on Wednesday to give a reading and answer questions, but I was able to catch up with her via email in advance of her event.
