Sara Suleri Goodyear

Location: The Renaissance Society
Admission: free
 
Sara Suleri Goodyear is the author of two highly praised books, The Rhetoric of English India, and Meatless Days. Both are considered indispensible to the field of postcolonial studies. Meatless Days, a collection of essays derived from the author's reminiscences of her childhood, reconstructs the socio-political events surrounding the formation of Pakistan in 1947. In the words of Henry Louis Gates, "Suleri is a postcolonial Proust to Rushdie's phantasmagorical Pynchon."

Dawn Raffel

Location: The Renaissance Society
Admission: free
 
Dawn Raffel is the author of The Year of Long Division, a collection of short stories each wrought with the precision of a Persian miniature. Raffel's stories are jewel-precious. Compact, lucid, and striking, Raffel's momentary reflections are complex glitters of thought that are true signs of life. Raffel's stories have appeared in The Quarterly Review, The Iowa Review, and American Letters and Commentary.
