Book Reading: Lena Khalaf Tuffaha & Sahar Mustafah

7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 6, 2017

Russell J. Ebeid Library & Resource Center @ AANM


Arab American authors Lena Khalaf Tuffaha and Sahar Mustafah will be reading from their new works; copies of the books will be for sale in The AANM Store following the reading and the authors will be available for signing.

Tuffaha is the author of Water & Salt (Red Hen Press, 2017), a book of poetry. She previously published the chapbook Arab in Newsland (Two Sylvias Press, 2017). Now based in Redmond, Washington, Tuffaha has lived in and traveled across the Arab world, and many of her poems are inspired by the experiences of crossing cultural, geographic and political borders.

Mustafah is the author of Code of the West (Willow Books, 2017), a book of short stories. She is the co-founder of Bird’s Thumb, an online literary journal, and has been teaching for over 20 years in Illinois. Mustafah is a daughter of Palestinian immigrants, a richly complex inheritance she explores in her fiction.
