Aisha Sabatini Sloan, Axton Reading Series
Aisha Sabatini Sloan’s writing about race and current events is often coupled with analysis of art, film and pop culture. Dinty W. Moore deemed her first essay collection, The Fluency of Light, “One of the most original, startling memoirs I have seen in the past ten years.” Her second book, Dreaming of Ramadi in Detroit, was chosen by Maggie Nelson as the winner of the1913 Open Prose Book Contest. A contributing editor for Guernica and a staff writer for Autostraddle, she has taught writing at OSU Cascades’ Low-Residency Program, Carleton College and the University of Michigan’s New England Literature Program.
