The New Voices of Arab American Literature (In Person)

In the contentious battleground of political America, Arab American writers have strived to drown out the divisive rhetoric through compelling, evocative portraits of life in the Arab world, diasporic ache, and subversion of embedded stereotypes. We meet with five Arab American writers to learn the narratives that guide their work, how they write and recollect in America, and the place Arab American literature occupies in the larger literary zeitgeist. Panelists include Hala Alyan, Zein El-Amine, George Abraham, Andrea Abi-Karam, and Nadia Shammas. Moderated by Ghinwa Jawhari.
