Laleh Khadivi, Michael David Lukas, moderated by Bich Minh Nguyen

To write is to take risks: with words, with voice, with subject matter. The process of writing something daring doesn’t end with publication—authors have to live with the consequences of taking these risks, personally and socially. Laleh Khadivi, author of “A Good Country,” and Michael David Lukas, author of “The Last Watchman of Old Cairo,” both faculty in USF’s MFA in Writing program, talk with writer and program director Beth Nguyen about risky writing and the questions writers never seem to get (or don’t get enough). They invite audience members to ask their own risky questions.
