Left Bank Books welcomes award-winning author Fatima Bhutto, who will discuss her new novel, “The Runaways,” on Facebook Live at 3pm CDT on August 19. Bhutto will be in conversation with NPR’s Morning Edition host Steve Inskeep. Join us on our Facebook Page and order a copy of “The Runaways” from Left Bank Books. “Fatima Bhutto vividly renders the seductions of Islamic radicalization in such a way that we understand both its historical specificity and its universal roots in idealism and desire, rage and romance, youth and rebellion. Drawn from the headlines but plunging much deeper, “The Runaways” is a novel for our difficult times.” —Viet Thanh Nguyen. All you need to do to participate is log in to your personal Facebook account, go to Left Bank Books’ Facebook Page, “Like” the page, and wait for the livestream to begin on the page.
