March 16 | Gemini Wahhaj — The Children of this Madness - with Javed Jahangir and Sonal Kohli — at Union Market

Join us at Politics & Prose Bookstore this Saturday, March 16, 2024 at 3:00pm at their Union Market store. Gemini Wahhaj will discuss her new book, The Children of this Madness, with Javed Jahangir and Sonal Kohli.

In The Children of this Madness, Gemini Wahhaj pens a complex tale of modern Bengalis, one that illuminates the recent histories not only of Bangladesh, but America and Iraq. Told in multiple voices over successive eras, this is the story of Nasir Uddin and his daughter Beena, and the intersection of their distant, vastly different lives.

Gemini Wahhaj is a Bangladeshi American writer living in the US. She wrote her debut novel, The Children of this Madness as a new immigrant in the US, while she was a graduate student in the creative writing program at the University of Houston and war raged in Iraq. She is grateful to publish the novel in December of this year, in the 20 year anniversary of the Iraq war, about Bengalis living in Texas, and their complicated history with both Iraq and the US.
