Aya Khalil’s own life experiences— as an immigrant and educator— informed the creation of her first book being released this month, the touching children’s tale The Arabic Quilt.
To celebrate the occasion, Gathering Volumes is holding a special release party for the Toledo author on February 15. The story of a young girl who just wants to fit in, but whose classmates tease her about her faith, The Arabic Quilt is a lovely tale with a moving message of tolerance for all ages.
