Aisha Sharif's Book Release
"Won't you celebrate with me?" My first book, To Keep From Undressing, is finally here!
This collection of poems explores my experiences as an African American Muslim woman. It reveals the beautifully complex ways that faith, gender, race, geography, marriage, and motherhood intertwine, and how we, particularly as women, "keep from undressing" when faced with uncovering the truths of our lives.
After a decade of dreaming, writing, editing, and submitting this body of work, I can now share it with all of you! "Won't you celebrate with me?"
Please join me for my book release on Friday, February 1, 2019 from 6pm to 8pm, hosted by the El-Scari Harvey Art Galley, located inside of the Center For Spiritual Living in Kansas City, MO. The evening will consist of me reading select poems and signing purchased copies.
