10 - Interview with Sehba Sarwar, onsite interviews at the Little Literary Fair, and August events for authors and creators
First BookSwell shares highlights from the inaugural Little Literary Fair, or LITLIT where Managing Editor Cody Sisco was joined by co-host Rachelle Yousuf for this "pop-up book fair" at Hauser and Wirth in DTLA to chat about what they've been reading lately. Cody also conducted a series of flash interviews with Rachel Wills, Candace Miller, and Katelyn Keating at LITLIT that are short, sweet and packed with information. After that, Cody sits down for a longer conversation with author, activist, and artist Sehba Sarwar. Sehba's novel, Black Wings, was finally released in the US earlier this year, after originally being published in Pakistan in 2004. Keep up with all of Sehba's readings, art performances and publications on her website. Rounding out the episode, Shannon Eagen discusses some upcoming literary events that will be particularly appealing to writers and creators of their own content.
