Refugee Engagement Month: Exploring the Refugee Experience continues!

On Thursday, March 21st, author and former Rivier professor Terry Farish visits campus for two events:

From 2 – 4 p.m. in the Dion Center Reception Room, Terry will lead a writing workshop on telling a life story, as memoir, a series of poems, or fiction. Participants will draw on memory, oral history, the work of other writers, and the work of one another as they write.   

At 7 p.m. in the Dion Center Reception Room, Terry will read from and discuss The Good Braider. Her novel follows Viola as she survives brutality in war-torn Sudan, makes a perilous journey, lives as a refugee in Egypt, and finally reaches Portland, Maine, where she is hampered by memories of past horrors and the traditions her mother and other Sudanese adults hold dear.   It is not necessary to have read the book to enjoy the event – please attend!
