Reading: Sophia al Maria – The Girl Who Fell to EarthBookclub

Sophia Al Maria is an artist, writer, and filmmaker. She works a great deal with the concept of “Gulf Futurism” a term coined by Al Maria to explain an existing phenomenon she has observed in architecture, urban planning, art, aesthetics and popular culture in the post-oil Persian Gulf. Her memoir ‘The Girl Who Fell To Earth’ was published by HarperCollins on November 27, 2012.

I’VE NEVER READ HER is a book club based in East London.  We read short fiction & essays by women, every second Wednesday of the month. Bring a bottle (or not) and your thoughts. Everybody is welcome. We also host screenings and events around the texts that we read.
