Book Signing: The Healing

MONDAY, OCTOBER 8th - 7:00-9:00PM


Commonplace Books is hosting a book signing event for The Healing by Saeeda Hafiz. In this memoir of upward mobility through the unexpected route of yoga, a young African American woman signs up for lessons in yoga and clean eating as a sign that she has now entered the middle class. The Healing is Saeeda Hafiz’s personal, painfully honest account of facing the inner demons fed by the domestic violence, addiction, and poverty she witnessed as a child.

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 16th - 7:00-9:00PM

Join Commonplace Books for the Book Release of Muslims of the World: Portraits and Stories of Hope, Survival, Loss, and Love. 

The debut book by Sajjad Shah and Iman Mahoui, a book based on their popular Instagram of the same name. Like the Instagram account, the book’s mission statement is to tell true stories of Muslims living in the U.S. and around the world. Illustrated throughout with moving photographs taken by Ala Hamdan, each chapter will focus on different aspects of the Islamic faith and the many varying cultures it encompasses, offering tales of love, family, and faith while empowering Muslim women, refugees, and people of color.
