Salon No. 11: Tradition with Fatima Farheen Mirza
NEW DAY (Just this once!): Wednesday, October 24
224 Mulberry Street
New York, NY 10012
What: Feeling autumnal, anyone? This October, we'll be hearing from Fatima Farheen Mirza, author of A Place for Us – the first book selected for Manhattan legend Sarah Jessica Parker's imprint at Hogarth – at the LIVELY Experience Store in Soho.
A Place for Us is a fantastic novel themed around change, culture, and familial history: something we think resonates a lot around this time of year, and we're so excited to have Fatima join us for the conversation.
As always, we invite you to respond to the prompt literally and figuratively: the meaning and history of habit, the things we pass from child to sibling to family, and the burdens of upholding ritual amid change. We want to know: what does "Tradition" mean to you?
You may respond to the prompt in whichever literary method you please: song, poem, short story, script, etc. All we ask is that you keep your work limited to a maximum of 2 pages or 5-7 minutes spoken aloud.
