Sparks Like Stars

by Nadia Hashimi

Once again Nadia Hashimi beautifully blends the history and culture of Afghanistan with a compelling personal story of tragedy and survival reminiscent of her haunting novel from our 2017 Festival, When the Moon is Low. In this recently released novel, 10-year-old Sitara is the only one in her family to escape assassination in the 1978 communist coup. Adopted by an American diplomate, a startling incident thirty years later sparks her desire for answers and a return to Afghanistan.
