The event is open to all upon registration

The Goethe-Institut Bangladesh in partnership with HerStory Foundation will host a digital reading of The Bird Catcher by Fayesa Hasanat in Bangla and English on July 21 at 7:30pm on Zoom. The event is open to all upon registration.

The choice of book is motivated by exploring literature that deals with isolation, challenging events, and uncertainty. Set in Bangladesh and the United States, the eight stories in The Bird Catcher address gender expectations, familial love, and questions of identity and belonging.           

The book offers wide-ranging variations on the theme of diasporic identity, intriguing glimpses into suppressed, fragmented, and resilient lives, and a meditation on the power and limitations of language.


Bangladeshi-American writer, Fayeza Hasanat, is a literary scholar who specialises in gender studies, translations studies, and literature of the British Empire and the South Asian diaspora. She teaches in the English Department of the University of Central Florida.

The Bird Catcher is her debut story collection.
