April Women’s Book Club at Outloud Books

Hi All,

Just a reminder, the OutLoud Women’s Book Group will meet Sunday, April 11, at 3:00 pm, to discuss I Can’t Think Straight by award winning writer and film director Shamim Sarif. The novel is based on the screenplay by Kelly Moss and Shamim Sarif and the movie version of I Can’t Think Straight is also available at OutLoud.

“Tala, a London based Palestinian, is preparing for her elaborate Middle Eastern wedding when she meets Leyla, a young British Indian woman who is dating Tala’s best friend.
Spirited Christian Tala and shy Muslim Leyla could not be more different from each other, but the attraction is immediate and goes deeper than friendship.
As Tala’s wedding day approaches, simmering tensions come to a boiling point and the pressure mounts for Tala to be true to herself.
Moving between the vast enclaves of Middle Eastern high society and the stunning backdrop of London’s West End, I Can’t Think Straight explores the clashes between East and West, love and marriage, conventions and individuality, creating a humorous and tender story of unexpected love and unusual freedom.” (Book Jacket)

As usual, let me remind you that the book group meeting is open to anyone and you don’t have to read the book to attend.

See you there!
