More to the Story Book Event with Hena Khan

Join acclaimed author Hena Khan for an event on Sun, 10/20 at 1 p.m. to promote her new book, MORE TO THE STORY, inspired by Louisa May Alcott’s beloved classic, Little Women, featuring four sisters from a modern American Muslim family living in Georgia.

SALAAM READS STAR: Hena Khan has won readers over with her debut middle grade novel, AMINA'S VOICE, for which R.J. Palacio stated, "For inspiring empathy in readers, you can't get better than this book."

INSPIRED BY THE CLASSIC…WITH A DIVERSE TWIST: Little Women is the perfect inspiration for this modern look at an American family. While at once familiar to many, it will tackle issues that many are struggling with in today's society--financial hardship, racism, and healthcare issues. This is a novel that is full of empathy, and gets to the heart of modern day concerns that many children will relate to.
