Abu-Jaber Reading

Diana Abu-Jaber was at Powell’s yesterday, to read from her latest novel, Crescent, which is now out in paperback. I hadn’t heard Abu-Jaber read before, and was delighted with her rendering of the scene in which Sirine and Han make pastries together in the back of the restaurant. Abu-Jaber will be in Missoula, St. Paul, Chicago, D.C., and Coral Gables in the next few days. You can also check out her new website for the latest news.
