The Last Bookstore and Amberjack Publishing are pleased to introduce Reema Zaman and her memoir, I Am Yours. Reema’s story is a lyrical, politically incisive critique of the wounds our world has inflicted on a woman’s body, an immigrant body, a brown body. It is about Reema’s fight to protect and free her voice from those who have sought to silence her. By sharing her story, Reema offers inspiration and guides others to a process of healing by encouraging them to voice their truth. To speak is a revolution.

It is time.

It is time to free our voice.

To speak is a revolution.

For too long, through the most intimate acts of erasure, women have been silenced. Now, women everywhere are breaking through the limits placed on us by family, society, and tradition. To find our voices. To make space for ourselves in this world. Now is the moment to reclaim what was once lost, stolen, forsaken, or abandoned. I Am Yours is about my fight to protect and free my voice from those who have sought to silence me, for the sake of creating a world where all voices are welcome and respected. Because the voice, without intimacy, will atrophy. We’re in this together. You are mine, and I am yours.

Reema Zaman is an award-winning author, speaker, and teacher. Her work has been featured in The Guardian, Narratively, The Rumpus, B*tch, Magazine, The Huffington Post, and elsewhere. Zaman was selected as the 2018 Oregon Literary Arts’ Writer of Color Fellow and serves as Ambassador and Mentor for Girls Inc., Pacific Northwest. Born in Bangladesh, raised in Thailand, and presently residing in Portland, Oregon, she holds a double B.A. in gender studies and theater from Skidmore College.
