Ruby Hamad: Legacy Books

In this minisode from FWF 2018 Sydney, Ruby Hamad talks about the books that shaped her feminism and her writing.

Her picks are Behind the Scenes at the Museum by Kate Atkinson, of which she says: ‘So profound was its impact on me that Behind the Scenes at the Museum reconnected me to my long forgotten dream of writing for a living and reminded me that being a writer is something that it is possible to be’ , and Audre Lorde’s Sister Outsider: ‘Nothing is inevitable and no progress is ever assured. It is the generous wisdom and searing insight of thinkers like Lorde that drag us kicking and screaming into the future.’
