What happens when a princess from Somalia comes to America? This is the basis for novelist Marisa Labozzetta’s powerful new book, Sometimes It Snows in America, a novel loosely based on a true account.
Born into Somali royalty on her father’s side and Saudi Arabian wealth on her mother’s, Fatma is given away in infancy to her childless auntie in Kenya. At the age of 12, she is forced into a marriage with a westerner.
Call 347.327.9995 on Tuesday January 22nd from 10-11 A.M. U.S. to learn about the prejudice of Fatma’s birth mother and the demands of the Muslim culture which lead to a number of painful promises that will dictate the course of Fatma’s life in both Africa and America.
