An Emotional Story About an Internment Camp for Muslim American Citizens, a Young Adult Fiction Book Talk & Signing
Samira Ahmed is the New York Times bestselling author of Love, Hate & Other Filters. She will discuss and sign Internment ($17.99 Little, Brown Books for Young Readers). Set in a horrifying near-future United States, seventeen-year-old Layla Amin and her parents are forced into an internment camp for Muslim American citizens.
With the help of newly made friends also trapped within the internment camp, her boyfriend on the outside, and an unexpected alliance, Layla begins a journey to fight for freedom, leading a revolution against the internment camp's Director and his guards. Heart-racing and emotional, Internment challenges readers to fight complicit silence that exists in our society today. Ahmed will be joined by Sandhya Menon, author of When Dimple Met Rishi and From Twinkle, with Love.
