Inaugural Reading a Great Success!

Fellows, faculty and admirers turned out in large numbers last week to show their support at the Writers’ Institute’s first-ever fiction reading. Curated by Jonathan Galassi and introduced by Andre Aciman, the event featured the work of three fiction writers – Debora Kuan, Humera Afridi and Martin Quinn. Galassi’s selections spoke to the range of writing styles in the Institute’s fiction workshop, and the readers did not disappoint, giving the crowd glimpses of a homosexual seduction in Iraq, a post-earthquake rattled Pakistan and an American life fraught with accomplishment and malaise. KGB proved as gracious a host as expected. Stay tuned for more information about opportunities to attend Writers’ Institute readings and grab a beer in the red room.
