Community Read: Dancing in the Mosque

June 24 @ 3:00 pm

The Penn Yan Action Coalition invites you to participate in this year’s community read of DANCING IN THE MOSQUE: AN AFGHAN MOTHER’S LETTER TO HER SON, by Homeira Qaderi, which is available for purchase at Long’s Cards and Books in downtown Penn Yan. This moving memoir introduces us to a courageous woman, one who “challenges you to reconsider the meaning of motherhood, sacrifice, and survival. Her story asks you to consider the lengths you would go to protect yourself, your family, and your dignity.” In this final session, we will be joined by staff members from Saint’s Place, a Rochester-based organization serving refugees from around the world, for a discussion about their work and how it might intersect with the events and themes of Homeira’s book. In addition, we will be joined by several Afghan women who will share their stories with us. To register for all three sessions and receive access information, please visit https://bit.ly/pyread22
