Fauzia Rafique’s novel ‘Skeena’ to be launched in English and Punjabi

Vancouver Lower Mainland writer Fauzia Rafique’s novel ‘Skeena’ will be launched in English and Punjabi in Surrey and Vancouver on April 9 and April 10 at 2-4 PM. View event information:
Punjabi Gurumukhi and Shahmukhi editions, Surrey April 9
English edition, Vancouver April 10

‘Skeena is the story of a Muslim Canadian woman spanning thirty years of her life where she explores her changing environments, religious and cultural influences, and intimate relationships. Told by Skeena herself, it is a rare glimpse into the mind and perspectives of a Muslim woman. With the utter simplicity of style and expression, and a plot immersed in gripping realities, Fauzia has created a novel that is hard to put down even when it explodes some deep-rooted myths.’ (Libros Libertad 2011)

From a Punjabi village, ‘Skeena’ takes us to Lahore city, Toronto Ontario, and then Surrey in British Columbia.

“This far-reaching novel eloquently displays the author’s love of history and storytelling. Blood, Feathers and Holy Men rampages from monastic life in the old world to exotic practices on a distant continent. En route the reader is treated to the lifestyles of impoverished Irish monks, marauding Vikings, the first nations in a new world and the early civilizations of what would one day become Central America. Ben Nuttall-Smith has crafted a fascinating tale of enormous scope.”
