One Friday, February 4th, we held an online launch event for our new publication, Under the Mulberry Tree: A Contemporary Uyghur Anthology, Vol. I.
It was amazing to see so many people joining us for our launch! Thank you again to our editors, designers, contributors (we wouldn’t have anything without you!!), workshop hosts, and everyone who supported us along the way.
We had a great introduction from Emily and Maidina, followed by a short talk on the Olympics boycott by Kabir, and then beautiful presentations from Muyesser Hendan, Munawwar, Kabir, Camilla, and Sarah, with surprise appearances from Mirshad and Aynur (and her cat!!). Sonya brought it home with some final remarks after a short Q&A and, overall, it was a heartwarming experience.
