Author Event: Osama Alomar Reads

May 4, 2017

Syrian author Osama Alomar is a poet, musician, former Chicago cabbie, and a celebrated short story writer, and on Saturday, May 6 at 2 pm he visits EPL to share his acclaimed new book The Teeth of the Comb & Other Stories. Praised by the NY Times, Publisher’s Weekly, and the Chicago Review of Books, Alomar’s stories were described by Lydia Davis as “magical imaginative creations… inspired by his deeply felt philosophical, moral, and political convictions.” Make sure to register to guarantee your seat at this special author event, and in the meantime, don’t miss this great New Yorker essay titled “Osama Alomar’s Very Short Tales.” See you Saturday!

This event is part of the Evanston Literary Festival and made possible in part by Poets & Writers.
