Poupeh Missaghi: A Reading and Conversation

Join writer Poupeh Missaghi as she reads from her novel Trans(re)lating House One, about which Publishers Weekly has said, “Missaghi’s lyrical, meditative debut merges fiction, poetry, and critical study to explore Iran’s history and volatile present ... a bravura exhibition of writing as performance art.” A Q&A will follow.

Missaghi is a writer, a translator (both into and out of Persian), Asymptote’s Iran editor-at-large, and an educator. She holds a Ph.D. in English and creative writing from the University of Denver and an M.A. in creative writing from Johns Hopkins University. Her nonfiction, fiction and translations have appeared in numerous journals, and she has several books of translation published in Iran. She is currently a visiting assistant professor at the Department of Writing at the Pratt Institute, Brooklyn.
