Lord Mayor’s Writers in Residence: Meet Sara El Sayed
Soos is coming of age in a household with a lot of rules. No bikinis, despite the Queensland heat. No boys, unless he’s Muslim. And no life insurance, not even when her father gets cancer.
Soos is trying to balance her parents’ strict decrees with having friendships, crushes and the freedom to develop her own values. With each rule Soos comes up against, she is forced to choose between doing what her parents say is right and following her instincts. When her family falls apart, she comes to see her parents as flawed, their morals based on a muddy logic. But she will also learn that they are her strongest defenders.
Join Sara El Sayed as she shares Muddy People, her hilarious and heart-warming memoir of growing up and becoming yourself in an Egyptian Muslim family. This event is presented in partnership with Dymocks Brisbane.
