BECOMING AMERICAN: MOTHERLANDS: BOOK TALKWednesday November 28, 2018
Presented by author Natasha Garrett
The author of Motherlands, Natasha Garrett, moved from her native Macedonia to the US to attend college; she never expected to become a proud Pittsburgher. She will read excerpts from her book, Motherlands and discuss the changing patterns of immigration. In her writing, she uses humor and personal stories to explore what it means to “become” American and navigate languages, cultures and identities.
Natasha Garrett was born and raised in Macedonia and lives in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where she serves as a Director of International Student Services at La Roche College. Her poetry, personal essays and translations have appeared in Transnational Literature, Gravel, Allegro Poetry Magazine, Arts and Letters, and other publications. She is the editor of “Macedonia 2013: 100 Years After the Treaty of Bucharest.” She obtained her PhD in Education at the University of Pittsburgh, and her Master’s in English Literature from Duquesne University.
