American Authors, Transnational Voices

Tuesday, July 31, 2018 from 7 – 9 PM
Chopin Theatre
1543 W. Division, Chicago
Free

At a moment when the US government seems to be pushing much of the rest of the world away, Natania Rosenfeld has assembled a program of writers whose work is informed by backgrounds, experiences, and research that reach across national borders. The memories and histories of persecution, migration, exile, and assimilation threaded through these authors' poetry and prose are a welcome reminder that American writing is always already global. i will be reading with Faisal Mohyuddin, Natania Rosenfeld and Ruth Danon.
