International Writers Series: Ali Araghi

  • October 14, 2020 • 7 PM – 8 PM
  • Zoom

In this virtual reading and discussion, PhD candidate Ali Araghi will present his recently published novel The Immortals of Tehran with Marshall Klimasewiski, Senior Writer in Residence. Exploring the brutality of history while conjuring the astonishment of magical realism, The Immortals of Tehran is a novel about the incantatory power of words and the revolutionary sparks of love, family, and poetry–set against the indifferent, relentless march of time.

This is the inaugural season for the International Writers Series, a new collaboration between the International Writers track of the Program in Comparative Literature and the University Libraries at Washington University to celebrate new publications of creative works by writers and translators in the Washington University in St. Louis community. The discussions are moderated by Matthias Goeritz, Professor of Practice of Comparative Literature.

Free and open to all.
