Written Arts Program presents

Porochista Khakpour Reading

Monday, July 21, 2014

[Porochista Khakpour Reading]
Porochista Khakpour, candidate for a fiction position in the Written Arts program, reads from her work.

Porochista Khakpour's first novel, Sons and Other Flammable Objects (Grove/Atlantic) received the California Book Award and was a New York Times "Editor's Choice" and Chicago Tribune "Fall's Best" selection. In a starred review, Kirkus called her forthcoming second book, The Last Illusion (Bloomsbury), "an audaciously ambitious novel that teeters along a tightrope but never falls off." Her fiction and nonfiction have appeared in Harper's, Guernica, The Los Angeles Times, The Village Voice, and elsewhere.

This event is free and open to the public.
