Join us on Thursday, April 27 at 6 p.m. ET on Zoom as we celebrate the vibrant Arab American creative community during Arab American Heritage Month with a panel of three phenomenal authors: Reem Assil, author of ArabiyyaSarah Cypher, author of The Skin and Its Girl; and Malaka Gharib, author of It Won’t Always Be Like This.

The conversation will be moderated by Lana Barkawi, Executive & Artistic Director of Mizna, a critical platform for contemporary literature, film, art, and cultural production centering the work of Arab and Southwest Asian and North African artists. Assil, Cypher, and Gharib will discuss their books—a cookbook, a novel, and a memoir—the ways we celebrate heritage, grappling with perception and misperception, and the varied homages to lineage, love, and resilience from across the diaspora.

When you register for your free ticket to this conversation, you will also have the option to buy any of the featured authors’ books from our independent bookstore partner, Moon Palace Books, based in Minneapolis, MN.

Sign up to reserve your spot today. We can’t wait to see you there.
