Go Back to Where You Came From! With Wajahat Ali and Friends

Salon Wajahat Ali Main Image 1 Symphony Space 2021


Symphony Space and the Asian American Writers’ Workshop present a celebration of journalist, playwright, and political activist Wajahat Ali’s funny, wise, and necessary memoir Go Back to Where You Came From: And Other Helpful Recommendations on How to Become American. Emceed by Ali, this evening of storytelling, comedy, and music will probe the highs and lows of the American immigrant experience, featuring acclaimed writer Min Jin Lee (Pachinko) and more.

Special bonus: Tickets come with a copy of Go Back to Where You Came From! There are a limited number of companion tickets available that do not include a book. To purchase a companion ticket, please enter the code Wajahat. Note that companion tickets are only available to purchase with a full-price ticket.

There will be pre-signed books for sale.
