The UGA Creative Writing Program is pleased to present a book launch for English department/creative writing faculty Aruni Kashyap and Andrew Zawacki.  This reading will take place on Wednesday, February 12th, 7 p.m. at Ciné and is free and open to the public.

Kashyap’s His Father’s Disease was published in 2019 by Context (an imprint of Westland Books, 2019).  According to the Huffington Post: “In His Father’s Disease Kashyap precisely embarks on a journey to undo the single-story surrounding his homeland. He makes no effort to play safe by catering to the mainland’s expectations from a writer coming from India’s Northeast. With the first story itself, Kashyap plunges headlong into murky waters without losing sight of his goal – to narrate the tales of displaced individuals desperately negotiating home.”

Zawacki’s Unsun was published in 2019 by Coach House Books.  “In his fifth poetry volume, American poet Andrew Zawacki expands his inquiry into the possibilities and dangers of a 'global pastoral,' exploring geographies alternately enhanced and flattened out by digital networks, international transit, the uneven and invisible movements of capital, and the unrelenting feedback loops of data surveillance, weather disaster, war.”
