Looking forward to seeing many friends at AWP 2019 in Portland, OR. I’ll be participating in a reading to celebrate the Massachusetts Review’s 60th anniversary! Here’s the blurb for the event:
A 60th Anniversary Celebration of The Massachusetts Review. (Jim Hicks, Maaza Mengiste, Tabish Khair, Emily Barton, Lena Khalef Tuffaha) 2019 is MR’s 60th anniversary, and to celebrate, four of our favorite contributors will read from their new work. For six decades, MR has published literature and art that challenges complacency, encourages international debate, and achieves the highest aesthetic quality. These novelists, journalists, and poets span four continents and embody MR’s mission in their work, their commitment to social justice and artistic quality, and their dynamic engagement with the wider literary world.
The event will be Saturday, March 30th, 2019, at 10:30 AM. Hope to see you there!
