Author Talk: Jasmin Faulk-Dickerson on “The Last Sandstorm”

October 11, 2022 at 6:30 pm - 7:45 pm PDT


Come spend an evening with Olympia resident Jasmin Faulk-Dickerson, who will read from and discuss her book, “The Last Sandstorm,” a memoir of her life in Saudi Arabia from childhood to young adulthood, and her daring escape to the West.

The book is both a coming-of-age story and an immigrant’s saga, two overlapping narratives that are told with generosity, humor, and a pervasive sense of longing and loss. The narrative documents what it means to grow up with unanswered questions, strive to conform and belong, and finally, dare to leave her known world behind.

Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing at the end of the program.
