Zoe Ferraris, Author of "Finding Nouf" Nov 16
Sunday
2pm

Civic Center Library

Zoë Ferraris, author of Finding Nouf, will speak at the Livermore Public Library Civic Center, 1188 S. Livermore Avenue, at 2pm on Sunday, November 16th. There is no charge for this event.

Zoë Ferraris’s electrifying debut of taut psychological suspense offers an unprecedented window into Saudi Arabia and the lives of men and women there. When sixteen-year-old Nouf goes missing her family calls on Nayir al-Sharqi, a desert guide, to lead a search party. This mission will push gentle, pious Nayir to delve into the secret life of a rich, protected teenage girl – in one of the most rigidly gender-segregated of Middle Eastern societies. Nayir soon realizes that if he wants to gain access to the hidden world of women, he will have to join forces with Katya Hijazi, a lab worker at the coroner’s office. Their partnership challenges Nayir, bringing him face to face with his desire for female companionship and the limitations imposed by his beliefs. Fast-paced and utterly transporting, Finding Nouf offers an intimate glimpse inside a closed society, and a riveting mystery.

Zoë Ferraris moved to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia in the aftermath of the first Gulf War. She lived in a conservative Muslim community with her then-husband and his family, a group of Saudi-Palestinians. She currently lives in San Francisco.
