Blog posting written by Chloe Wilson, Television-Radio ’14, FLEFF Intern, Ashland, Massachusetts.

Sorayya Khan is a world-renowned author.  Not only was she the recipient of a Fulbright Award, but she has written two novels (including Noor) and has previously worked with FLEFF in writing the essay for a previous year.

Because I’m incredibly lucky, I got the opportunity to talk to Khan about her work, her role with FLEFF 2012, and her definition of microtopias. It was hard to narrow it down, but here are some choice quotes from our discussion!

On FLEFF: “I’m so happy to return to work with FLEFF this year.  I’ve previously worked with FLEFF writing the festival essay and am really excited for the theme microtopias.”

On her reading this Sunday: “I will be reading my essay from Autobiographic International Relations: I, IR.  Most of the papers written are by academics so mine stands out in that sense. It talks about how and why I write.”

On microtopias: “I think the theme being microtopias, it means sharing worlds.  Collaborating worlds as well.  I just think about the world coming together.”

Be sure to listen to Khan’s reading at Buffalo Street Books this Sunday at 3 PM!  You can find more information about the event here.

Are you excited, FLEFFers?  What other events are you interested in attending?
