Author Reading Tonight: Sehba Sarwar, Fan Wu, and liz gonzález

Come to the San Francisco Library’s Main Branch tonight for readings and book signings from three female authors with diverse cultural backgrounds: Sehba Sarwar, Fan Wu, and liz gonzález.

The event is happening at the Chinese Room at the Main library tonight, Thursday 10/10 from 5:30-7:00. The Main Library is in downtown San Francisco, right off Market street and next to Civic Center BART.

From the SFPL’s website:

“This literary event celebrates women of color authors, who will be reading from and talking about their writing and how their various backgrounds influence their creative works. Award-winning Pakistani writer and artist, Sehba Sarwar, will read from her recently-published debut novel Black Wings. This book is about a story of a mother and daughter who struggle to meet across the generations, cultures and secrets that separate them. Bay Area-based writer Fan Wu will read from her critically acclaimed novels including Beautiful as Yesterday, a book about two sisters who were born and brought up in China and now reside in the United States. Her writing explores the impact of history and memories on one’s life. And fourth-generation Southern Californian liz gonzález will share from her multi-genre collection Dancing in the Santa Ana Winds. Her book explores memories, pivotal experiences and cultural influences that shaped her when growing up as a nontraditional Catholic Mexican American in San Bernardino.

A book sale and signing will follow the event.”
