Tahereh Mafi, with Ibtihaj Muhammad, discusses and signs A Very Large Expanse of Sea

Set one year after 9/11, A Very Large Expanse of Sea follows Shirin, a sixteen-year-old Muslim girl who is tired of the discrimination and degrading comments she faces every day as a result of her hijab. So, Shirin has learned never let anyone past the protective walls she has built for herself. But then she meets Ocean James, who actually wants to befriend her despite the two coming from seemingly irreconcilable worlds. Shirin becomes terrified and unsure whether or not she’ll ever be able to let down her guard.

Mafi will be joined in conversation by olympian 
Ibtihaj Muhammad.
