Bangladeshi-American poet Tarfia Faizullah will read from her collection, Seam, which U.S. Poet Laureate Natasha Trethewey calls a “gorgeous and powerful debut.” Her poetry explores the ethics of interviewing, and the history of female survivors of the Bangladesh Liberation War. Faizullah has won a number of awards for her poetry, including the 2015 Great Lake College Association New Writers Awards.
