Upcoming Events:

Border Crossing & AWP Panel

This year at AWP I'm joined by four wonderful authors for both a reading and a panel. I've spent the past few months getting familiar with the work of these authors and every one of them is so, so good. Hope to see you in Portland!

Note: Zahra Noorbakhsh will be replaced by Elmaz Abindader for both events.
