Journey to Liberation: Readings on Subversive Literature

Introducing our new reading group series, Journey to Liberation: Readings on Subversive Literature. We’re inviting writers and readers from the community to join us on a bi-monthly basis to read and connect over a selection of short stories and excerpts. Within these sessions, participants will be able to meet up in our Reading Room, reflecting on and connecting over themes of the text together. The itinerary will include a brief re-reading time before the conversations begin. 


This month’s sessions are facilitated by writer and researcher, Farah Fawzi Ali, who has selected a list of short stories from the region that explore current themes and their implications in today's world.


Be a part of a community exploring topics of identity, resistance, and decolonization through literature.
