Description

Solmaz Sharif

Solmaz Sharif will visit Johns Hopkins University as part of the annual Foreign Affairs Symposium. Sharif's debut collection LOOK was a finalist for the 2016 National Book Award and 2017 PEN Open Book Award. In LOOK, she recounts her family's experience with exile and immigration in the aftermath of warfare — including living under surveillance and in detention in the United States. She is currently a Jones Lecturer at Stanford University.

Founded in 1997, the annual Foreign Affairs Symposium is run by students and sponsored by the university's Office of Student Development and Programming.
