Mouth to Mouth Open Mic

We’re roaring back with a vengeance! Print out your best prose and bring it to the first AAWW Open Mic of 2013, with hosts Ed Lin and Jen Kwok. We will be joined by A.X. Ahmad and Open Mic favorite John-Flor Sisante. A.X. Ahmad’s debut novel The Caretaker follows ex-Indian Army captain and current undocumented immigrant Ranjit Singh, a caretaker of homes on Martha’s Vineyard, as he gets trapped in a deadly political intrigue and a steamy affair. The Wall Street Journal noted that “[A.X. Ahmad’s] debut novel is neither a traditional thriller nor a typical piece of literary fiction. Instead, it exists in a curious in-between space—rather like Mr. Ahmad himself.”

A.X. AHMAD was raised in India, educated at Vassar College and M.I.T., and worked internationally as an architect before taking up writing full time. His short stories and essays have been published in The Missouri Review, The Harvard Review, The New England Review, Narrative Magazine and The Good Men Project. He’s been a finalist for Glimmertrain’s Short Story Award, and been listed in Best American Essays. He lives in Washington, D.C. https://www.facebook.com/axahmadauthor

JOHN-FLOR SISANTE is a multitalented instrumentalist, singer songwriter, New Yorker, and a fantastic ukuele player. His sweet, whimsical, and occasionally downright sad original compositions are well known to Open Mic regulars as well as anyone who has caught his one of his many shows at places like Rockwood Music Hall, Kollaboration NY.

This event is open to the public. $5 suggested donation. Come at 6:30 PM to sign up for a 5-minute slot!
