LitNight Reading Series feat. Fowzia Karimi
June 9 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
PEN America invites you to celebrate LitNight’s second anniversary with a virtual reading featuring established and emerging writers, on Tuesday, June 9, at 7pm Central time.
Founder and host of LitNight Sanderia Faye says, “This anniversary shows the dedication that Dallas and Fort Worth have toward creating a literary city. The authors and audience are the reason we have thrived, and the four powerhouse authors featured for our anniversary celebration are a testament to our survival.”
LitNight is a monthly reading series featuring some of the most exciting established and emerging writers to come out of Dallas, and the literary community at large. This month’s virtual reading will feature Deb Olin Unferth, Renee Simms, Fowzia Karimi, and Natalie Baszile.
Fowzia Karimi was born in Kabul, Afghanistan. She immigrated to the US in 1980, after the Soviet invasion of the country. Karimi has a background in Studio Art and Biology. She received her MFA in Creative Writing from Mills College, California. Her work explores the correspondence on the page between the written and the visual arts. She is a recipient of The Rona Jaffe Foundation Writers’ Award, and has illustrated The Brick House by Micheline Aharonian Marcom and Vagrants and Uncommon Visitors by A. Kendra Green. She lives in Texas.
