East-West Storytelling


May 2 | CUNY Graduate Center | NYC

With Nadeem Aslam, Nam Le, Fuad Rifka, and Antje Rávic Strubel; moderated by John Freeman

And how do elements travel across cultures in the story differently than in the novel? Granta’s American editor John Freeman will lead the discussion.

Cosponsored by Granta and the Martin E. Segal Theatre, The Graduate Center, CUNY
