"In language that is at once lyrical and unsentimental…[Samina Ali] is a must read for anyone…" - Bharati Mukherjee, author of Desirable Daughters

INTERSECTION FOR THE ARTS is proud to present, as part of our Fall 2004 Literary Series, a paired reading with two exciting young Bay Area fiction writers, Samina Ali and Lysley Tenorio, on Monday October 11, 2004 at 8:00 PM. Entitled New Fiction, this reading presents two voices that are defining the multicultural fabric of contemporary America. Samina Ali’s first novel, Madras on Rainy Days, was published by Farrar, Straus and Giroux earlier this year, and Lysley Tenorio’s stories have been published in The Atlantic Monthly, The Chicago Tribune, and Best New American Voices 2001. Ali uses lyrical, haunting prose and richly drawn characters to explores both the upside and the downside of being a first generation Muslim Indo-American woman, trapped between the demands of competing cultural heritages. Tenorio’s writing is sophisticated, and his humorous and insightful perceptions into his own Filipino cultural heritage has enabled him to approach stories with campy premises with integrity and genuine emotion. Admission is $5 - $15 sliding scale.

Celebrating our 40th Anniversary in 2005, Intersection for the Arts is San Francisco’s oldest alternative art space and provides a place where provocative ideas, diverse art forms, artists and audiences can intersect one another. At Intersection, experimentation and risk are possible, debate and critical inquiry are embraced, community is essential,
resources and experience are democratized, and today’s issues are thrashed about in the heat and immediacy of live art.
