Book Launch: Abeer Hoque "Olive Witch" 2pm
Abeer Hoque presents: Olive Witch
I was born in Enugu, Nigeria, and lived in the university town of Nsukka until I was 13. My family then moved to the suburbs of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where I completed high school. My younger sister, Simi, is a professor of green architecture at Drexel University in Philadelphia. Her partner, Ezra is an atmospheric scientist, also at Drexel, their daughter, Vesper, is 7, and twins Esme and Quinn are a cutie 4 years old. My little brother Maher works for PNC Bank as an IT consultant and lives in Pittsburgh along with its other football addled residents (see jollybengali.net for evidence). My parents live in Pittsburgh where my father is a fiction writer and retired professor of geology and my mother teaches computers and economics.
