Description

Join visiting New Fiction Confab author Azareen Van der Vliet Oloomi for a one-hour craft talk for adults on the art of writing fiction.

ABOUT AZAREEN VAN DER VLIET OLOOMI: Azareen Van der Vliet Oloomi’s second work of fiction, Call Me Zebra, explores the ways we cope with grief, our unresolved histories, and the tangled depths of loves. It traces a journey from Iran to New York City, and makes a powerful case for the importance of literary art. Author Oloomi is the recipient of a Whiting Award and was named one of the National Book Foundation’s “5 Under 35” honorees in 2015 for her debut book Fra Keeler. Her work has appeared in The Paris Review, Granta, Guernica, BOMB, and elsewhere.

Oloomi will also make an appearance this same day for a series of panel discussions with all New Fiction Confab authors at the Central Library beginning at 2:00pm. To learn more about the New Fiction Confab, click here.
