Toronto based author and social worker, Farzana Doctor, will be coming to the 2110 Centre for Gender Advocacy, on Friday, November 7, 2008, 7pm. Doctor will be reading from her critically acclaimed novel, “Stealing Nasreen”. A discussion will follow. Books will be available for purchase and signing.
The story focuses on an Indo-Canadian lesbian therapist who becomes entangled in the lives of an underemployed new immigrant couple from India.
“There was a growing awareness of issues relating to underemployed immigrants,” says Doctor about the inspiration behind the book. “I was also really interested in writing immigrant and queer characters because I feel that there aren’t enough novels on this topic.”

The event is organized by the Simone de Beauvoir Institute and co-sponsored by the Concordia Coop Bookstore, the 2110 Centre for Gender Advocacy and the South Asian Women’s Community Centre.
