Below is a list of my current upcoming events. If you would like to invite me to read samples of my work, perform, present, or lecture, please don’t hesitate to ask.
The following list of events could change at any moment. Please check it regularly.
After ten days in Kuwait’s Annual Book fair, with three appearances in three booths (Thoughts and Creativity Club, sponsored by Dr. Haifa Al-Sanousi, the US Embassy, and That Al-Salasil) Before Young Adult Fiction made an appearance at The Annual Holiday Bazaar, which is supported by the US Embassy, at Salwa Al-Sabah’s Hall, by Marina Mall.
On the 25th of November, That Al-Salasil hosted a 2 hour book-signing session for Before Young Adult Fiction in its booth at Kuwait’s Annual Book Fair. I am pleased to announce that the book sold out and new copies are now available.
In addition, the book-signing was picked up by a national paper. However, Al-Seyassah Newspaper wrote a completely different name under my picture, which I am now considering to adopt for good.
Last night with Dhari Buyabes and Ambassador Matthew H. Tueller. More pictures on my page: Nada Faris | Writer.

I had a great time today with friends, family, and fans. I’m still suffering from jetlag though, cruising on 2 hours of sleep and an inflamed throat. Thank God I lost my voice after the event.
Because Q8bookstore treated me so well, I’m keeping my books there at a discount. Read them then sell them back to the store for credit.
Thanks to the IWP, I spotlighted at Busboys & Poets last night, reading three poems: “Stasis is the Mark of the Dead”, “Artemis” and “Facebook Intellectuals” which were thankfully well received.
On the 26th of October, The New Union, a British literary magazine, posted an article that featured my work.
