AAWW & MoMA PRESENT Writing Club at Home: On Memory with Sarah Thankam Mathews


In collaboration with the Museum of Modern Art, AAWW Presents Writing Club At Home. This May, Writing Club at Home welcomes guest writer Sarah Thankam Mathews to facilitate a writing workshop on the theme of memory, focusing on artworks by Lorna Simpson and Maria Magdalena Campos-Pons on view in the installation History into Being. This workshop takes place online, via Zoom.

Writing Club is part of MoMA’s Artful Practices for Well-Being initiative, where we seek to offer a space for connectedness and healing through art.

Sarah Thankam Mathews grew up between Oman and India, immigrating to the United States in her late teens. Her work has been published in Best American Short Stories and received fellowships from the Asian American Writers’ Workshop and the Iowa Writers’ Workshop. In 2020, she founded the mutual aid group Bed-Stuy Strong. All This Could Be Different, Mathews’ debut novel, was named a NYT Editor’s Choice, chosen for Best of 2022 lists, and shortlisted for the Discover Prize, the Aspen Words Literary Prize, and the National Book Award.  

American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation and CART captioning is available for public programs upon request with two weeks’ advance notice. MoMA will make every effort to provide accommodation for requests made with less than two weeks’ notice. Please contact AdultPrograms@moma.org to make a request for these accommodations.
