Release DateThe Veil: Women Writers on Its History, Lore, and Politics, a book in which I have an essay discussing some of my feelings about wearing hijab, now has a release date: 17 April, 2008. It's coming out from the University Press of California, and already they have contracts for overseas editions in the UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, and Guam!
It's been interesting seeing how long it has taken to get this book to print. I was one of the later contributors, and I must have written the essay at least a year and a half ago. They say it takes two years to get a book to print once you have written it; it's just hard to believe when you see some books coming out only weeks after a significant event.
