Introductions by Katie Raissian and Hamilton Cain
Sayed Kashua and David Treuer

Join acclaimed novelist Sayed Kashua (Track Changes) and brilliant memoirist-historian David Treuer (The Heartbeat of Wounded Knee, a finalist for the National Book Award) as they read from their new books and break down our collective myths about national identity. In a politically polarized era, Kashua and Treuer’s urgent writing takes a hard look at our notions of homeland and cultural heritage in both America and the Middle East, revealing the widening cracks in the idea of nationalism itself with sharp intelligence, humor and grace. Don’t miss these phenomenal writers and thinkers as they take the stage together for one night only.
