Be Like Teflon
Be Like Teflon is a new book by Jasleen Kaur commissioned by Panel for Glasgow Women's Library.
In a collection of conversations between Jasleen and women of Indian heritage living in the UK, arise themes of labour, duty, sustenance and loss. Here we find a place for their histories, experience and strength. Through the simple act of listening, over a hot tava or plate of food, begin acts of solidarity and self-nourishment.
Be Like Teflon was produced by Panel. It is co-published by Glasgow Women's Library and Dent-De-Leone.
Be Like Teflon is now sold out. You can access a digital copy of the book on The Digital Archive of Artists’ Publishing (DAAP) website here

A Recipe for an Event
To mark the launch of Be Like Teflon, Glasgow Women’s Library and Panel hosted A Recipe for An Event on Saturday 27th April 2019, comprising a programme of selected works by artists exploring the actions of ‘speaking to’ and of ‘speaking for’. Through reading, recorded conversation, performance, film and food, this event made space for lost stories and new conversations.
Featuring Elmira 'Bolly' Fauchon with Mireille Fauchon, Surinder Kaur, Jasleen Kaur with Harbhajan Kaur, Raju Rage, Amanprit Sandhu, Alia Syed and Rehana Zaman.
A Recipe for an Event was produced in partnership with Glasgow Women's Library with support from Creative Scotland and Glasgow Life.
