09/23/2022 12:00pm 09/23/2022 1:30pm IWP International Authors panel: Migration One of the pressing, grand, themes of 21st century writing is the ubiquity and effects of migration. This is understandable in cases where the writer has had direct experience of some sort—is perhaps a migrant her/himself. How to also conceive of migrants as readers, however—how can “they” be inscribed into the literary world? The International Authors series provides an opportunity for the community to meet and converse with writers from around the world who are the 2022 Fall Writers in Residence at the University of Iowa International Writing Program. The series is sponsored by The UI International Writing Program and The Iowa City Public Library. Iowa City Public Library Iowa City Public Library refmail@icpl.org America/Chicago public
