Rapunzel's Gone Bald!!
I will read an excerpt of my play "Rapunzel's Gone Bald" at the Association of Writers and Writing Program (AWWP) in Washington DC tomorrow Friday, February 4,2011.
Crossing Genres, Boundaries, and Cultures: A Reading of Iranian-American Writers. (Manijeh Nasrabadi, Porochista Khakpour, Saïd Sayrafiezadeh, Ezzat Goushegir, Roger Sedarat)
The literary tradition of the United States thrives upon the convergence of disparate cultures. The rising popularity of Iranian American writing especially exemplifies both the successful strategies and the difficulties of turning one’s experience of two very different backgrounds into literature. Four authors, each representing one genre, read from their award-winning writing.
