About Our Speakers
Carmen Maria Machado is the author of the bestselling memoir In the Dream House, the graphic novel The Low, Low Woods, and the short story collection Her Body and Other Parties, which was a finalist for the National Book Award. Her essays, fiction, and criticism have appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times, Granta, Vogue, This American Life, Tin House, McSweeney’s Quarterly Concern, and elsewhere. She holds an MFA from the Iowa Writers’ Workshop and has been awarded fellowships and residencies from the Guggenheim Foundation, Yaddo, Hedgebrook, and the Millay Colony for the Arts. She lives in Brooklyn.
Zehra Khan is a multidisciplinary artist whose work includes drawing, sculpture, installation, performance, and painting — the latter often on her fellow humans. She received an MFA from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown in 2007, and a BS from Skidmore College. Khan loves traveling to art residencies including Yaddo, the Studios of Key West, Ox-Bow, I-Park, the Vermont Studio Center, Art Space Sonahmoo in Korea, and Space A in Kathmandu. Khan lived year-round in Provincetown from 2007-2018, and now lives in Chicago where she is a member of the gallery Tiger Strikes Asteroid.
