Guernica: A Magazine of Art and Politics hosts a panel with debut novelists Dinaw Mengestu, György Dragomán, and Saša Stanišić, whose narrators recount escaping violence in their home countries only to be fraught with feelings of ambivalence in their adopted countries. Moderated by Irina Reyn, whose debut novel, What Happened to Anna K., will be published in August 2008, the panel will explore children as witnesses, the status of exile, and the role of fiction as a voice for multiculturalism.
