When Pakistan gained its independence in 1947, one its aims was to protect the country’s religious minorities. Yet almost immediately, political and religious leaders declared it an Islamic country.  In ‘Purifying the Land of the Pure’ author Farahnaz Ispahani examines how his country’s politics have regrettably sanctioned religious intolerance.

Ten-year old Lemonade teams up with her town’s only Bigfoot investigator to not only try and locate any sasquatch, but also as a way to deal with her mother’s death in Melissa Savage’s ‘Lemons.’
