As part of a collaboration between CKCU and the Ottawa International Writers Festival, we are pleased to present selected episodes of Writers Fest Radio. Today, we present the second of three special episodes hosted by York University’s Zulfikar Hirji and presented in collaboration with Carleton University’s Beyond Resettlement Conference. (https://carleton.ca/uganda-collection/beyond-resettlement/) Tasneem Jamal was born in Mbarara, Uganda, and immigrated to Canada with her family in 1975. The author of the novel Where the Air Is Sweet, she serves as a nonfiction editor at The New Quarterly and is at work on her second novel.
