Int'l Book Launch: Borderlines Volumes One + Two


Karachi Literature Festival, Beach Luxury Hotel, Karachi, Pakistan
10:00-11:00 am, February 6, 2016

In February 2016, Karachi Literature Festival will launch the first two volumes of VBB's Borderlines series; Sehba Sarwar, Tehmina Ahmed and Naila Mahmood will share excerpts from their writings. The session will be moderated by Ghazi Salahuddin. The reading and panel will include an exchange of ideas and deeper discussion of today's border issues as well as the sale of Borderlines Volumes One + Two.

Creating connections between two border regions, South Asia and North America, Borderlines Volumes One + Two are high-quality art catalogues filled with essays, poems, and interviews along with images from VBB's visual art productions.

Writers, poets and scholars in the first two volumes include: Tehmina Ahmed (Pakistan), Monica Arreola (Mexico) Nandita Bhavnani (India), Minerva Laveaga (USA-Mexico border), Tayeba Begum Lipi (Bangladesh), Emmy Perez (USA-Mexico border), Sehba Sarwar (Pakistan-USA), Bapsi Sidhwa (Pakistan-USA), Adriana Trujillo (Mexico), Noor Zaheer (India), and many more. The catalogues are edited by Margot Backus PhD and Maria Gonzalez PhD.
