Zaina Arafat Reading, December 2nd

Join UCF’s Creative Writing MFA program in welcoming Zaina Arafat for a virtual reading to be held on Wednesday, December 2nd at 4 to 5:30PM! This reading will have an introduction by MFA candidate Eli Rowell, and will be hosted and moderated by MFA candidate Dez Deshaies.

Zaina Arafat’s debut novel, You Exist Too Much, follows a Palestinian-American protagonist across Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine, and New York on her often self-destructive search for love, examining trauma and identity and the blurred, dividing line between. It has been praised by O Oprah Magazine and Harper’s Bazaar, among many others. A list of her publications and more about her novel can be found here on her website, and copies can be purchased here.
