I Come To Your Country, Name Me

By The Guild Literary Complex

Diverse voices lead to stronger communities, and the Guild Literary Complex is dedicated to featuring Chicago's varied chorus. The Guild continues our 25-year legacy by piloting a new series featuring Asian-American authors and themes. I Come To Your Country, Name Me, the first of this series, takes place Wednesday, September 24, 7 p.m. - 9 p.m. at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago's LeRoy Neiman Center (37 South Wabash Avenue, first floor). Similar to our monthly Palabra Pura reading series, this event will kick off with an open mic reading, beginning at 7 p.m.

This reading features three Chicago authors whose works address themes of identity, home, and the immigrant experience: Rachel DeWoskin, Mary Anne Mohanraj, and Deepak Unnikrishnan. It is held in conjunction with (and co-presented by) the Kriti Festival - a three-day festival of literature from authors of Desi background and of the Asian Diaspora. The event is also co-presented by Master of Fine Arts in Writing Program at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
