Dirt will be hosting a book club every last Monday of the month. All attendees will receive 10% off the beverage of their choice.
In October we will be discussing A Place for Us by Fatima Farheen Mirza.
This book follows the lives of an Indian-American Muslim family, as they gather together in their Californian hometown to celebrate the eldest daughter, Hadia’s, wedding. This is also the day that Amar, the youngest of the siblings, reunites with his family for the first time in three years. Rafiq and Layla must now contend with the choices and betrayals that lead to their son’s estrangement - the reckoning of parents who strove to pass on their cultures and traditions to their children; and of children who in turn struggle to balance authenticity in themselves with loyalty to the home they came from.
