Book Launch – Nobody Killed Her

Join Sabyn Javeri at the launch of  her novel; ‘Nobody Killed Her’. a literary thriller set around a court trial, following the murder of a female political leader, Rani Shah, in an unnamed Muslim country. The suspect on trial, Nazo Khan, is her assistant and confidant who, surprisingly, escapes unscathed in the blast that rocks Rani to her death. The style is unusual–an experimentation of form- an attempt to involve the reader directly into the narrative. The writing is deliberately sparse and staccato; the plot- a fast-moving page-turner.

Dr Sabyn Javeri holds a Masters with Distinction from the University of Oxford and has a doctorate from the University of Leicester. She currently teaches Muslim Feminist Fiction at the IBA, Karachi, and also works as an editor and literary agent. Her fiction and texts on creative writing have been widely published. She has also worked successfully in marketing and has to her credit the creative content of the hugely successful Ponds Miracle Woman Campaign.

When: Saturday, 1st April

Where: The Basement, Liberty Books

Timings : 6 pm to 8 pm
