There is a season for everything, inspite of what life throws at us. Just last weekend, Muslims across the world were celebrating Eid al-Fitr as month long Ramadan came to an end. Today, S.K. Ali shares a little about how she was able to find joy and celebrate Eid.
S. K. Ali holds a degree in Creative Writing from York University and has written about Muslim life for various outlets, including the Toronto Star and NBC News. Her second novel, Love From A to Z (Simon & Schuster, 2019), a story about finding love in the time of Islamophobia, was a Today Show pick, a Goodreads Readers Choice Nominee and on several best 2019 YA lists, including Entertainment Weekly’s top ten. Along with We Need Diverse Books co-founder, Aisha Saeed, Sajidah is the co-editor of an upcoming Middle Grade anthology called, Once Upon an Eid (Amulet, May 5, 2020). S. K. Ali lives in Toronto with her family, which includes a very vocal cat named Yeti.

I LOVE this book! I was so bummed out not to be able to share it with my students this year. We were already finished with classes for the year.
