Personal in the Political (ft. Hala Alyan, Hayan Charara, Marwa Helal & Tanwi Nandini Islam)

By Asian American Writers' Workshop

On this episode of AAWW Radio, we’re featuring three Arab American writers exploring the boundaries between personal and political: novelist/poet Hala Alyan and poets Hayan Charara and Marwa Helal. From the Six-Day War and the invasion of Iraq to explosive poetic experimentations, these writers explore what it means to have a private self, a family space, and a home in the conditions of war, displacement, and migration. They read from their work and have a conversation with with novelist and former AAWW Open City Fellow Tanaïs. This event was co-sponsored with Radius of Arab American Writers, Turning Point for Women and Families, and Alwan for the Arts.
