Visiting Writers: Neema Avashia

On April 16 at 7 p.m. in the Blue Ridge Room of UNC Asheville’s Highsmith Union, Neema Avashia will present readings from her recent work. The event is free and open to the public.
Avashia’s memoir, “Another Appalachia: Coming Up Queer and Indian in a Mountain Place,” examines both the roots and the resonance of Avashia’s identity as a queer, Desi Appalachian woman. She was born and raised in southern West Virginia to parents who immigrated to the U.S. Her essays have appeared in the “Bitter Southerner,” “Catapult,” “Kenyon Review Online,” and elsewhere.
