Minneapolis, June 16-18

All Sessions will take place at Open Book, at 1011 Washington Ave, Minneapolis 55415, 2nd floor.


RAWI+Mizna 6th National Lit Gathering will take place at Open Book, which houses the Loft Literary Center, in Minneapolis, MN, from June 16 to 18, 2016. These vibrant conferences are an opportunity to gather with leading writers, performers, and scholars of Arab American literature in a collegial and intimate setting. We invite all members of the Arab American community and our friends and allies to join together in spirit and conversation to celebrate and nurture Arab American literature, art, and culture.

**Ramadan Kareem! We realize that this year the RAWI+Mizna 6th National Lit Gathering falls during the month of Ramadan. There will be a designated prayer and meditation room at The Loft during conference hours, and on Thursday and Saturday, when the conference programming goes through sunset, we will have iftar snacks available.
