This presentation will feature exiled writers who are part of City of Asylum's Exiled Writer Residency Program, which is a long-term residency for literary writers who are in exile from their home countries and under threat of persecution because of their writing. The goal of this sanctuary program, which is operated on the Northside in Pittsburgh, is to enable each writer-in-residence to continue to write while transitioning to a stable, independent life in exile. Writers from Syria, Bangladesh, Ethiopia, and Sudan will read their work and talk about their stories of exile and sanctuary.
