Radiant Fugitives

RSVP HERE!

This August, the Asian American Writers’ Workshop celebrates the launch of Nawaaz Ahmed‘s moving debut novel, Radiant Fugitives. This multi-generational epic, which follows three generations of a Muslim Indian family, examines faith, forgiveness, and enduring love. Through the use of intelligent and beautiful language, Radiant Fugitives is an “exploration of our common humanity, and the ways in which we are more alike than different” (Wally Lamb). Nawaaz will be joined in conversation by poet, novelist, and professor Kazim Ali.

Purchase a copy of Radiant Fugitives, and books by Kazim Ali from our friends at Books Are Magic!

*This event will be live-streamed on Zoom, and captions will be available. Please RSVP to receive the Zoom link via email. The event will be uploaded to AAWW YouTube channel the following week.*
