Please join us for the annual Books and Biryani event organized by the Canadian Council of Muslim Women. Biryani dinner included in ticket price. 
 
Uzma Jalaluddin is the acclaimed author of   Ayesha At Last.  Love is universal, but the ways in which we love, meet and mate are as varied as we are.  The spirited heroine of this modern day Muslim romance meets her match in the equally strong willed and very attractive Khalid (even if he does dress kind of funny).  Add to the mix meddlesome Indian relatives and a cousin who is awash in marriage proposals and we have a love story for the ages. After all, marriage is a family affair. Isn't it?
 
Join us as we immerse ourselves in the world of Ayesha and Khalid as they navigate their twenty-first century Canadian romance, complete with loving grandmothers and overbearing in laws. 
 
This annual salon is a must attend for anyone who loves discussing ideas and literature over plates of steaming biryani.  
 
The Canadian Council of Muslim Women is a national organization devoted to the equity, equality and empowerment of Canadian Muslim Women. Established in Winnipeg in 1982, there are chapters across the country. We're inspired by our faith to partner with civil society groups to advance social justice across the spectrum. And here at the Ottawa chapter, we're inspired by the power of words to illuminate essential truths.
