Beyond Baroque: South Asian Writers Resist
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.
