The book on Masry

Share: Share on Facebook submit to reddit StumbleUpon Toolbar

Just in time for campaign season, Syracuse University press has released its latest offering, a biography of Saudi Arabian immigrant and Newbury Park schoolteacher Ferial Masry, the Democratic candidate in Ventura County's 37th Assembly District.

There may be local candidates who are more charismatic, who have a better chance to win, have more experience and what-not, but a case can be made that none has as compelling a personal story as Masry.
