Join the Duke Writers’ Collective for a keynote, Q&A discussion with esteemed Bangladeshi-Australian poet and novelist Fariha Róisín. The event will be followed by a book signing, and copies of her book How to Cure a Ghost will be available for purchase.

Fariha writes on Muslim identity, race, self-care, pop culture, and film (as well as queerness and how that intersects with being a femme of color navigating a white world), and has written for The New York Times, Al Jazeera, The Guardian, Vice, them, Fusion, Village Voice and others. She has a poetry book entitled How To Cure A Ghost that came out this year as well as a journal on femme/non-binary body empowerment called Being In Your Body. She’s also working on her first novel, entitled Like A Bird, to be out in Fall 2020.

Presented by the Duke Writer’s Collective, a student organization that aims to foster a literary culture on campus.
