Resolve to Read More in the New Year! 


In January 2019, Tasveer is expanding into serving the literary interests of the Seattle community. The inaugural TSAL will present award-winning local and visiting authors and feature a diverse and novel blend of storytelling, poetry events, literary panels on LGBTQ writings and post-colonial fiction, and readings pertaining to the South Asian diaspora in the U.S.
The festival opens with a keynote address from acclaimed South Asian author Amitava Kumar, whose book  Immigrant, Montana, was chosen by President Obama as one of his favorite books of 2018. We are also proud to welcome to Sharmila Sen (Not Quite Not White), SJ Sindu (A Marriage of a Thousand Lies), and Shobha Rao (Girls Burn Brighter,) amongst others.
Tasveer is committed to showcasing local writers and poets. Featured at TSAL are Seattle’s 2018/19 Youth Poet Laureate Azura Tyabji and Seattle-based authors including Indu Sundaresan (The Mountain of Light) and Sonora Jha (Foreign). In addition to readings, program highlights include the popular South Asian Storytelling event, Storywallahs: What’s In Your Name, as well as a youth version hosted by Tasveer Youth Collective–also being inaugurated in 2019– and a discussion of the film adaption of South Asian fiction.
The first Tasveer South Asian Literary Festival is presented in partnership with Gardner Center for Asian Arts and Ideas, The Elliot Bay Book Company, Hugo House, KUOW, Northwest Film Forum, South Asia Center, UW Seattle, and Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences, UW Bothell.

Thanks to generous funding by the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods, all Tasveer Reads events are free to the public and will run from January 11-20 in and around Capitol Hill.
