UConn Reads Stamford Campus Events

Explore the distance between stories that "take place" in dis/placement, as storytellers speak and remember, create and re-create times and spaces through reinvention. Since this year's UConn Reads theme concerns migrants and refugees, we bring together a panel of narrators: Indian-American novelist Anu Jindal, Ellen Litman who writes of the former Soviet Jewish diaspora in her fiction, and traditional Burmese storyteller Nell Murry. Moderated by Professors Fred Roden and Sharmishtha Chowdhury. Lunch included.
