gauntletNewsday interviewed senior English major Hebah Uddin who is living every young writer’s dream – she has published her first novel, The Gauntlet, through Salaam Reads, a division of Simon & Schuster Books. This adventure story with a Middle Eastern flair is about a trio of friends from New York City who find themselves trapped inside a mechanical board game that they must dismantle in order to save themselves and generations of other children. The Gauntlet is the second book published by Salaam Reads, an imprint that seeks to publish stories that feature main characters who are Muslim.
