Writing Workshop with Arushi Raina
Feb 1 @ 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM


For ages 12+

“Let’s work together to write in voices—familiar, unexpected, and sometimes strange.
Let’s talk about what it means to be different.
Let’s reach people with words.”

About the instructor:
ARUSHI RAINA grew up in South Africa and has also lived in India, Egypt, Nigeria, the US, UK, and most recently, in Vancouver Canada. Her debut novel, When Morning Comes is set in apartheid South Africa and explores the lives of four very different teens on the brink of a youth uprising. She likes flawed characters, escapes, and sentences that make you stop and wonder.

 

Author Reading – The Soweto Uprising in Fact and Fiction
Feb 1 @ 2:30 PM – 3:30 PM

All Ages.

ARUSHI RAINA grew up in South Africa and has also lived in India, Egypt, Nigeria, the US, UK, and most recently, in Vancouver, Canada. Her debut novel, When Morning Comes is set in apartheid South Africa and explores the lives of four very different teens on the brink of a youth uprising. She likes flawed characters, escapes, and sentences that make you stop and wonder.

 

Everyone is welcome to attend the author talk, “The Soweto Youth Uprising in Fact and Fiction,” where Arushi provides glimpses of apartheid South Africa through pictures, fiction and facts, followed by a discussion on how moments in the stories and histories echo with current events in Canada and internationally.
