Reading @ The Zeitgeist This Wednesday, 5/16

Hey Guys:

On May 16th, the night before the RAWI conference officially starts, Arab American writers Hayan Charara and Randa Jarrar will read together in Detroit, at the Zeitgeist Gallery.

Charara is the author of two poetry books, The Alchemist’s Diary and The Sadness of Others, and editor of the forthcoming anthology Contemporary Arab American Poetry. Jarrar is the author of the novel A Map of Home. Her award-winning fiction has appeared in numerous journals and anthologies. Her translations from Arabic into English are also widely published. A native of Detroit, Charara now lives in Texas. Jarrar, a long-time resident of Texas, now lives in Michigan.

The reading is smoke-free and admission free, though donations are accepted, and wine will be served for a fee.

In addition to readings, the Zeitgeist Gallery also features artwork and stages theatrical productions.

The Zeitgeist is located at 2661 Michigan Avenue, Detroit MI.

  1. This is happening right now, or it’s over, barely.

    So sorry I had to miss this! Man I’ll bet you’re having fun. I sure wish I could have heard you read. (and still bummed about my kids losing it during your half-ibex story at Stanford)
