Hana Shafi at TIFA 2023: Rooting For The Anti-Hero

September 28, 2023 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Hana Shafi, author of People You Know, Places You’ve Been, will be at TIFA 2023 for their “Rooting For The Anti-Hero” panel. Hana will be reading alongside Kevin Chong.

Description: Kevin Chong and Hana Shafi celebrate the underdogs, the anti-heroes, the misfits and weirdos in their latest works which, through playful genre-bending, poetry and prose, highlight the beauty, charm and nostalgia of everyday lives. A unique work of metafiction, Chong’s The Double Life of Benson Yu follows a comic book artist losing control of his newest story as the narrative of his own life starts to take over. Part-poetry collection, part-art book, Shafi’s People You Know, Places You’ve Been is a charming collage of the familiar archetypes of the everyday, from the Greasy Spoon to the Hot Professor to the Waiting Room. This event will be followed by a book signing.
