Hailing from Iran and creating a new chapter in diasporic literature, these writers have their roots in a literary tradition spanning two-and-a-half millennia. They’ll contemplate the influence of this heritage, and share insights gleaned from working and writing across cultures.

Berasal dari Iran dan menciptakan sebuah babak baru dalam sastra diaspora, para penulis ini berakar pada tradisi sastra yang mencakup dalam dua setengah milenium. Mereka akan merenungkan pengaruh warisan ini, dan berbagi wawasan yang diperoleh dari bekerja dan menulis tentang lintas budaya.
