Sonia Faruqi returns to WHU this Sunday!
Meet Sonia Faruqi!
We invited Sonia back to speak after her engaging talk earlier this spring on food sustainability. Now, she's ready to share her Perspective(s) on ocean conservation with her theme "The World Beneath the Waves".
Sonia Faruqi pushes the boundaries of imagination in her debut novel, The Oyster Thief, an underwater story for adults and young adults with themes of ocean conservation.
In The Oyster Thief, two worlds collide when a mermaid and human man meet, plunging readers into a vast underwater world brimming with adventure and intrigue. This is what Jodi Picoult, bestselling author of My Sister’s Keeper, says about The Oyster Thief: “The Oyster Thief creates a lush, imaginary underwater world that somehow manages to reinforce the reality of the need for environmental awareness—it’s unlike anything I’ve ever read.” The Oyster Thief has also received favorable reviews in Toronto Star and Globe and Mail.
Sonia is also the author of Project Animal Farm, a work of critically acclaimed investigative journalism about the world’s food system. A skilled storyteller and speaker, she lives in Toronto.
