The Dallas Institute of Humanities and Culture presents Boundaries and Borders
The Dallas Institute of Humanities and Culture, The Dallas Morning News, PEN America, and the Dallas Festival of Books and Ideas will host a free, three-part series, Boundaries and Borders. The series will explore language, art, and the city. Each part will look at the way that moving outside of the invisible boundaries of our comfort zone can expand and enrich our lives.
Session one on language on February 26 will feature author and adventurer, Anna Badkhen. Badkhen has written six books sharing her experiences living in different countries throughout the world. Her latest book Fisherman’s Blues tells of her personal discoveries within a West African fishing village where the residents struggle to maintain their way of life as the seas change and fish are harder to find. Badkhen’s other works include Walking with Abel, in which she crosses the savannahs of Mali with nomadic herdsmen, and The World is a Carpet where she learns about art, war, and trade in the Afghan desert. Each of Badkhen’s books showcases the uniqueness of global civilizations unexperienced by most.
Badkhen will be in conversation with assistant managing editor Tom Huang of The Dallas Morning News.
