Cityread 2019

One City. One Month. One Book.

Cityread London is an annual festival of literature that aims to bring reading to life for the city's inhabitants, workers and visitors. This year Ayisha Malik’s Sofia Khan is Not Obliged has been chosen as the city’s collective page-turner from 1st - 31st May.

In Conversation with Ayisha Malik

Saturday 25 May, 2:00 - 4:00pm
Join us for this exciting opportunity to meet the Cityread London 2019 author Ayisha Malik. She will read excerpts from Sofia Khan is Not Obliged and talk about the book.

Billed as the Muslim Bridget Jones, Sofia Khan is Not Obliged is the hilarious romantic comedy from the writer behind Nadiya Hussain's bestselling The Secret Lives of the Amir Sisters. Sofia Khan is single once more, after her sort-of-boyfriend proves just a little too close to his parents. And she'd be happy that way too, if her boss hadn't asked her to write a book about the weird and wonderful world of Muslim dating. Of course, even though she definitely isn't looking for love, to write the book she does need to do a little research...
