Tune in for Syrian fiction on US radio on August 14
The short story ‘City of Ashes’ by Syrian writer Zakaria Tamer, one of the Arab world’s preeminent short story writers, will be read and live-streamed on America’s National Public Radio member station WFIU 103.7 at 1:00pm local time (EST) at http://indianapublicmedia.org/radio/
‘City of Ashes’ is from Tamer’s book The Hedgehog, translated by Denys Johnson-Davies (AUC Press, 2009).
The upcoming reading is part of a new literary series, “Anthology,” produced by WFIU, a radio station located in the American college town Bloomington, in Indiana.
“We feature short stories, poetry, serialized novellas, memoir, and other genres from writers who have distinctive perspectives, including literature in translation,” explains WFIU producer Cynthia Wolfe.
