Shabnam Samuel signs A Fractured Life

Shabnam Samuel


Writer, host of the television program Dew Drops and Words, founder of the Panchgani Writer’s Retreat in India, and full-time health care industry worker: these are the many hats worn by author Shabnam Samuel. Shabnam has been writing as far back as her memory will allow; many of her essays have found publication in online magazines and blogs. Shabnam’s memoir, A Fractured Life, chronicles her early life as an abandoned three-year-old girl, her decision at twenty-seven-years-old to escape a troubled marriage and start a new life in America with her young son, and the twenty-five years from there that it took for her to finally find her place in the world. A story of sadness, loss, hope, strength, and new beginnings, A Fractured Life is one woman’s triumph in finding her own voice.

This event is free and seating is first come, first serve. To get a book signed during one of our events, a copy of the event book must be purchased through Mysterious Galaxy.

Abandoned by her parents as a three-year-old, and ultimately leaving her home country India for a new life in America as a young mother of a three-year-old son, this is not only an immigrant's story, but a poignant and powerful memoir that is at first, one of sadness and continuing adversity, but ultimately one of strength, purpose, and the universal triumph of hope. It is a story of dislocation, disruption, and despair, and brings focus to the silencing of girlhood and womanhood and how with time, love, and support we can work our way out of that silence. Shabnam Samuel was twenty seven when she moved to the US, carrying with her a troubled marriage, an almost estranged husband, and a three-year-old son. Hoping to create a fresh start from everything that was holding her down, it took Shabnam twenty-five years of trials and tribulations to finally find her voice, her strength, and her place in this world.
