Saadia Faruqi and I are thrilled to announce that our middle grade novel, A Place at the Table, is a 2021 Project LIT Book Club pick!

Our book was selected by students and educators. It’s one of 21 titles that kids in Project LIT programs will be reading, discussing, and celebrating.

We can’t wait for more readers to meet Sara Hameed and Elizabeth Shainmark.
