Featuring Danville Author Lubna Jahangiri
Don’t miss this opportunity to hear Danville resident Lubna Jahangiri talk about her book The Little Stepmother, A Novel, her experiences living in Pakistan, and issues impacting young girls and women in Pakistan today.
Lubna’s book is based on the real-life story of a woman she considers to be a hero. It tells the story of Jameela, a 12-year-old girl in an arranged marriage to an older man becoming his second wife and stepmother to his two children while living in northwest Pakistan. It is a haunting story of her struggle through physical and emotional adversity to become a strong and successful woman.
Lubna Jahangiri is a lawyer, wife, and mother originally from Pakistan. Born on International Women’s Day, Lubna has always considered this a sign and is honored to share stories of countless voiceless women who don’t have advocates.
This No Cost Event is open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
