Thanks to Marshal Zeringue!
Interviewed a member of University Teachers for Human Rights (Jaffna) about their new report, which focuses on the final two months of the war in Sri Lanka, and in particular, its ramifications for civilians. Listen to SAJA webcast here (follow links). Apologies for technological difficulties… unexpectedly ran tech for the show, which I had never done before.
Reading and on a panel myself, shortly… so off I go.
I’m excited to be reading in Iowa this week—at Prairie Lights tonight and at Grinnell College, with Saadi Simawe, on Thursday. Details of the PL reading tonight are below (the previous post) and the Grinnell reading is in the Rosenfield Center, Room 101, at 8 p.m. on Thursday evening.
(The Princess Bride is one of my all-time favorite movies.)
Anywho, I saw this recent post from Matt Ruff, which reminded me that I had contributed to Six-Word Memoirs on Love and Heartbreak: by Writers Famous and Obscure. Book’s out… now. I’ve got to get a copy! You should too 😉
(Thanks for the compliment, Matt! I like his submission as well, and not just for reasons of reciprocal politeness. I’m a sucker for superhero references.
Thanks also to Jennifer 8. Lee of The Fortune Cookie Chronicles for telling me about the project.)
Check out a Sepia post here.
Read some of my reading recs for the year here. Thanks to my Iowa pal Edan Lepucki for asking me to do that! It’s a great blog.
I’m regularly blogging over at the Mutiny. Check out my most recent post.
After a long silence, I’m trying to return to blogging!
Two recent posts at Sepia Mutiny. The first, a live-blogging of a Law & Order episode that purported to feature a storyline about Sri Lankans. The second, a post about my trip to Torino and my adventures with my fellow South Asian author, Tahmima Anam.
