Welcome Hiba to FTB!

So, my favorite ex-Muslim blogger is on FTB. I have mentioned Hiba Krisht (previously known as Mawa Berro) on this blog many times before, and if you are interested in ex-Muslims issues, I personally don’t know any better blogger to turn to. This is really an honor for FTB to host her. Read her author bio:

Hiba Krisht is a writer and professional translator from Beirut. An apostate from Islam, she grew up between an international expatriate community in Saudi Arabia and Hezbollah guerrilla warfare culture in Lebanon. Her literary work appears in or is forthcoming from The Kenyon Review, Hayden’s Ferry Review, 580 Split, Mizna, and the Evergreen Review among others. She is a recipient of the 2012 Jane Foulkes Malone Fellowship from Indiana Univeristy and the 2013 JoAnn Athanas Memorial Award in literature from the National Society of Arts and Letters. She received her BA in English literature and her MA in philosophy from the American University of Beirut. In her blog, she explores womanhood and politics post-Islam, with a recurring focus on the residual effects of 15 years of wearing the Muslim veil. She is working on a memoir expansion of her blog in book form.

I already know that memoir is going to be one of the best memoirs I will read.

This is her blog, Between a Veil and a Dark Place, and this is her first post, in which she thoroughly introduces herself. Read it! You will see why she’s amazing.
