Writers’ Workshop graduate Fatima Farheen Mirza will read from her New York Times bestselling novel, A Place for Us. “As Marilynne Robinson has done with Protestants and Alice McDermott has done with Catholics, Mirza finds in the intensity of a faithful Muslim family a universal language of love and anguish that speaks to us all.”—Washington Post

Fatima Farheen Mirza is a recipient of the Michener-Copernicus Fellowship. She was raised in California, and currently lives in New York.
