An Evening with Nahid Sewell  – Friday, September 15th – 5pm to 7pm

Join VWTH and supporters at the Victoria Golf Club for a book reading and presentation from Nahid Sewell, author of “The Ruby Tear Catcher”.

There will be wine and nibbles, a Q & A period following the reading and discussion, as well as a silent auction and door prizes.

In her words:
“Though I risked homeland to write this book, I’d hoped to transport readers to Persia, the land of blue-tiled mosques, saffron rice and kabob and bazaars filled with merchants selling anything from spices to Persian rugs. I wanted to share the beauty of my culture and the warmth of my people. But I also wanted to expose how poorly women are treated in the Middle East and help empower women and girls. Using the tear catcher as a symbol, I draw parallels between Christianity and Islam. My hope is for readers to understand that we are all the same and should embrace, not discriminate against those who don’t fit our mold. Most importantly, I want to give a voice to my sisters in the Middle East.” – Nahid Sewell
