Join us at t2f on Tuesday for a session of storytelling and poetry featuring Sehba Sarwar and Asif Farrukhi. The two writers, dramatically different from each other in perspective, style, and experience, have one thing in common: the city of Karachi. Sehba and Asif will read from their Karachi texts, in English and Urdu, and the readings will be followed by a discussion about Karachi and her myriad dimensions.
Sehba Sarwar’s essays, poems and stories have been published in anthologies, newspapers and magazines in Pakistan, India and USA. Her first novel, Black Wings, was published in 2004 (Alhamra Publishing, Islamabad) and some of her recent work has appeared in And the World Changed (Women Unlimited, New Delhi), Neither Day nor Night (Harper Collins, India), Ellipsis (Seattle), and in The News (Lahore).
Asif Farrukhi writes fiction in Urdu and has published a number of collections of short stories. In his recent work, he continues to be fascinated and repelled by Karachi.
