Love and Loss: Reflecting on Your Roots
With Lamees Al Ethari and Kamal Al-Solaylee.
A homecoming can take place in an airport terminal. It can also take place at your keyboard.
Join Lamees Al Ethari and Kamal Al-Solaylee as they discuss confronting national histories and personal stories in memoir. From Iraq to Yemen, both writers have tackled stories of devastating loss, balanced with reflections of love and peacefulness. How do they achieve this balance? And how did they maintain self-care while writing honestly and artfully about these stories?
