Join Charis and Raksha in celebrating the paperback release of Atlanta author, Soniah Kamal's novel, Unmarriageable, which is a Financial Times Readers’ Best Book of 2019, a 2019 Book All Georgians Should Read, and which has been shortlisted for the 2020 Townsend Prize for Fiction. In Unmarriageable, a one-of-a-kind retelling of Pride and Prejudice set in modern-day Pakistan, Alys Binat has sworn never to marry—until an encounter with one Mr. Darsee at a wedding makes her reconsider. You won't want to miss this charming update on Jane Austen’s beloved novel, which is an exhilarating exploration of love, marriage, class, and sisterhood. This event is co-sponsored by Charis Circle and Raksha, a Georgia-based nonprofit organization promoting a healthier and stronger South Asian community. The suggested donation of $5 for the evening will go to support the work and services of Raksha in thanks for all they do.
