<p>Award-winning filmmaker and writer Sophia Al-Maria’s <em>The Girl Who Fell to Earth</em> is a funny and wry coming-of-age memoir about growing up in between American and Gulf Arab cultures. With poignancy and humor, Al-Maria shares the struggles of being raised by an American mother and Bedouin father while shuttling between homes in the Pacific Northwest and the Middle East. Part family saga and part personal quest, <em>The Girl Who Fell to Earth</em> traces Al-Maria’s journey to make a place for herself in two different worlds.</p>
