The Wing: "Guest House for Young Widows"

Author Azadeh Moaveni will be at The Wing, Dumbo to discuss her new book, Guest House For Young Widows, which tells the stories of thirteen women and girls who have joined ISIS.

From ambitious straight-A students to traditional housewives, Moaveni uses their narratives to illuminate the broader issues of “terrorism” and political stagnation in the Middle East, and the urgent need for fresh thinking around gender and conflict. The “New York Times” calls the book "indispensable" and "a master class in illustrating the big picture through small stories."

Moaveni will be in conversation with investigative journalist Azmat Khan, author of the forthcoming "Precision Strike" from Random House.
