Actors Samy Nour Younes and Leila Buck will perform selections from Zeyn Joukhadar’s The Thirty Names of Night, followed by a conversation with Joukhadar moderated by Jenn Baker.
The captivating novel follows three generations of Syrian-American artists, writers, and activists who come together to help a young trans man discover his true name. Joukhadar takes readers from present-day Brooklyn to once-thriving Manhattan neighborhood of Little Syria, to great depression-era Syrian-American communities scattered West, to the village in Syria.
