Event Description

Emerge: New Mediums, New Voices

Just as pioneering South Asian women define emerging literary mediums, these mediums also define us. Inspired by these movements, the South Asian Women’s Creative Collective (SAWCC) presents Emerge: New Mediums, New Voices, a two-day interdisciplinary literary festival featuring screenwriters, memoirists and journalists who challenge the boundaries and contexts of the written word.

Saturday, April 4, 7-9:30pm | Keynote:
A Reading and Music Performance with Tanuja Desai Hidier
(accompanied by Atom Fellows)

@ Bluestockings Bookstore
172 Allen Street
New York, NY

Celebrated author Tanuja Desai Hidier will read from her books, Bombay Blues, the sequel to her critically acclaimed first novel Born Confused, and perform from her self-innovated accompanying ‘booktrack’ albums of original songs, Bombay Spleen (songs based on Bombay Blues) and When We Were Twins (based onBorn Confused), with collaborator on both albums, Atom Fellows. Join us for this amazing transdisciplinary evening celebrating literature and music at Bluestockings.
