Join our Saturday morning crew for an award-winning new young adult novel from Pakistani-Norwegian author, Gulraiz Sharif.
It’s the summer holidays and 15-year-old Mahmoud pictures long days on the bench outside his block of flats. Norwegian Norwegians go off on their summer holidays, but what do penniless immigrants do?
All the same, though, this summer will be different because the family has a visit from Uncle Ji from Pakistan, and Mahmoud is given the job of showing his uncle around Oslo. Uncle Ji is amazed by Norway and then he starts to wonder what’s wrong with Ali, Mahmoud’s little brother – the one who plays with Elsa dolls and doesn’t behave the way Pakistani boys are supposed to.
Before the summer is over, Mahmoud will be put to the test – both as the son and brother of his Pakistani family.
Along with the novel, we'll work to improve our spoken Norwegian with discussions and in-class reading.
