Celebrating Eid at Home

My second Personal Essay for We Need Diverse Books

One of the biggest honors of my writing career was working on the We Need Diverse Books blog team. My second essay for WNDB was about the first Eid under the Covid-19 pandemic. It was a comfort to express my thoughts and experiences with the WNDB team and readers. Now that the second Eid ul Fitr under the pandemic is coming up, I wanted to post my essay to relive the tough yet triumphant holiday.

Please visit the WNDB link to read the full essay, which features enjoyable Eid reads for children like OUR FAVORITE DAY OF THE YEAR and ONCE UPON AN EID.
