Come celebrate the launch of Syrian author in exile Osama Alomar's new collection The Teeth of the Comb and Other Stories (New Directions 2017).
Alomar will read from his work and sign copies of his new book with his translator, Athenaeum librarian Christian Collins.
"There are no wasted words in Alomar's beautiful collection: philosophical and subversive, these tiny parables deliver the kind of stunning maxims that convey a plea for progress and improvement. Alomar's writing brims with hope, and this slim volume is full of compassion and depth." - Publishers Weekly (starred review)
