  • Share:
Name: Beyond Baroque: South Asian Writers Resist
Date: January 21, 2021
Time: 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM PST
Event Description:

Presented by Beyond Baroque Literary Arts Center, in partnership with Los Angeles Poet Society, Tia Chucha Press, & the Tuesday Night Project.

Join South Asian writers at a special reading hosted by Beyond Baroque in which writers respond to urgent global issues including rising walls and closed borders, the Black Lives Matter movement, and immigration rights. The gathering — held eighteen months after the Indian government stripped the province of Kashmir of its special status and just one day after the transfer of power in the US — will create space for writers to forge connections across local and global borders. 

Featuring: Tanzila “Taz” Ahmed, Neelanjana Banerjee, Torsa Ghosal, Arshia Haq, Sorayya Khan, Mahmud Rahman, Shreerekha Subramanian. Hosted by Sehba Sarwar.

This event is supported in part by Poets & Writers.
