Read Think Act Ep. 15: Heritage and belonging with Fatima Daas
"That’s something I explore book: how can we find distance from the things our parents have imposed on us, or how they see us."
Welcome to the latest Read Think Act, part of our video series where writing and activism go hand in hand (or head to head) and we explore the space where they intersect, taking ideas from the pages and into our communities.
Episode 15 features the utterly brilliant Fatima Daas, whose debut novel 'The Last One' is a gorgeous, courageous and much acclaimed exploration of spiritual, religious, cultural and sexual selves. Here, the author answers three Read Think Act questions on inspiration, heritage, being Algerian, Muslim, queer and challenging isolation.
