Syrian-American author Jennifer Zeynab Joukhadar's debut novel, The Map of Salt and Stars, is the story of two girls -- a modern-day Syrian refugee seeking safety and a medieval adventurer apprenticed to a legendary mapmaker. A deep immersion into the richly varied cultures of the Middle East and North Africa, the book follows the journeys of Nour and Rawiya as they travel along identical paths across the region eight hundred years apart, braving the unknown beside their companions as they are pulled by the promise of reaching home at last. Joukhadar will give a reading from the novel and books will be available for purchase and signing.
