Book Talk: The Wrong End of the Table by Ayser Salman

What happens when a shy, awkward Arab girl with a weird name and an unfortunate propensity toward facial hair is uprooted from her homeland of Iraq and thrust into the alien town of Columbus, Ohio? Please join author Ayser Salman as she reads from her new book, The Wrong End of the Table: A Mostly Comic Memoir of a Muslim Arab American Woman Just Trying to Fit In and find out.  Part memoir and part how-not-to guide, Ayser Salman’s book is everything you wanted to know about Arabs but were afraid to ask.

Ayser Salman was born in Iraq before it became a curiosity, and moved to America as a toddler. She is a writer and producer and editor for companies like Universal Pictures, Miramax Films, Disney, The Weinstein Company, and FX. Ayser lives in Los Angeles, California.
