I am off to Toronto for the Luminato festival, at which I’ll be presenting with other Beirut39 authors, including Joumana Haddad and Hyam Yared. I’m really looking forward to seeing those foxy, badass women again, and I’m excited to explore Toronto, which I’ve never visited.

If you’re in the area, stop by our panel at the Glenn Gould Studio on Sunday, at 1PM, and then head over to the Jane Mallet theater afterwards (at 4PM) to see the New Yorker panel with Mona El-Tahawy and Hisham Matar.

I’ve also arranged to do a reading at Beit Zatoun, a Palestinian arts space, with some of the wonderful women of Aqsazine. That event will be at 7PM on Saturday. Details here.
