Book Launch | “How to Mend: On Motherhood and its Ghosts” Iman Mersal

We are pleased to invite you to the book launch of Kayfa Ta’s fourth publication: “How to Mend: On Motherhood and its Ghosts.” The launch will feature a conversation in Arabic with writer and poet Iman Mersal, next Monday, the 13th of February, at Townhouse Rawabet. The conversation will be moderated by writer and journalist Yahya Wagdy

In “How to mend: on motherhood and its ghosts”, the author moves through unfamiliar spaces – internal, fluid and complex. Her voice changes, moving in and out of focus, back and forth in time, and across different physical spaces and cultural spaces. The strokes of the book are fine and interlacing, moving between the lyrical, diaristic, poetic and academic. They are quite serious and burdened steps towards an inner-space that is often neglected and dismissed from mainstream writings on motherhood

Edited by Maha Maamoun, Ala Younis, with Mai Abu ElDahab, “How to mend: on motherhood and its ghosts” is a joint collaboration between Kayfa ta and Mophradat
