Readings from “My Shadow Is My Skin” hosted by editor Katherine Whitney (Virtual reading)

July 22 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

On July 22 at 6:00 pm, join WriterHouse member, Renata Khoshroo Louwers, and anthology contributors, Roger Sedarat and Mehdi Okasi, as they read from their essays and discuss the powerful collection with editor Katherine Whitney. 

The Iranian revolution of 1979 launched a vast, global diaspora, with many Iranians establishing new lives in the United States. In the four decades since, the diaspora has expanded to include not only those who emigrated immediately after the revolution but also their American-born children, more recent immigrants, and people who married into Iranian families, all of whom carry their own stories of trauma, triumph, adversity and belonging that reflect varied and nuanced perspectives on what it means to be Iranian or Iranian American. The essays in My Shadow Is My Skin are these stories.
