Event Presenter/Author: 
Samira Ahmed

"A timely YA novel set in a terrifying 'fifteen minutes in the future' USA . . . In a world that's constantly creating boundaries and walls between races, religions and nations, "Internment" is a powerful and relevant book that reads less like a piece of fiction and more a scarily plausible future scenario. Yet what should resonate with readers is the hope at the heart of the tale. If you enjoyed "The Hate U Give," this should be at the top of your TBR pile when March rolls around."CultureFly
