We Come Back Together: Chi Ta-wei

September 30 at 1:30pm

Stage in the Park, September 30 at 1:30pm ET.

“We come back together, only to fall apart.”

TIFA is proud to present a new collection of writing that responds to this phrase, penned by some of the world’s most distinct voices. Join us daily to hear authors read their newly commissioned work as part of our free, outdoor programming.

This event features renowned writer and scholar Chi Ta-wei. The Membranes, Ta-wei’s novella originally published in 1995 in Taiwan, is queer dystopian, speculative fiction that analyses climate change, technology and consent, all with startling vision of what our world may become.

The Ta-wei reading will be followed by a PEN Canada Writers in Prison Reading; you’ll hear Festival authors perform free readings of short prose and verse written by imprisoned writers from around the world including journalists, literary critics, filmmakers and a Nobel peace laureate. Curated in partnership with PEN Canada, an organization that defends freedom of expression and promotes global community through literature.

This is a free outdoor event. Find the venue on the #FestofAuthors22 map here.

Presented with support from the Taipei Cultural Center of TECO in New York.
