child of refugees


Aria Aber reads from her collection Hard Damage (2022), which meditates upon the Afghan refugee experience and familial relationships, particularly the one with her mother. Aber concludes the reading with two uncollected poems that center on grief and mortality. This reading was originally given alongside Shayla Lawz as part of the Morgan Lucas Schuldt Memorial Reading Series.
