Book Launch: Aatif Rashid | Portrait of Sebastian Khan
May 14 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
About the Book
Sebastian Khan is 380 days away from the end of college. An art history major who’s as much a connoisseur of members of the opposite sex as he is of Pre-Raphaelite paintings, Sebastian starts dating Fatima, a Muslim American determined to transition smoothly from campus life to a stable white-collar professional career. Sebastian’s membership in Model United Nations, though, takes him to college campuses all around North America, testing his commitment to Fatima and his readiness for adulthood. PORTRAIT OF SEBASTIAN KHAN is a humorous coming-of-age novel about a charismatic but emotionally stunted Muslim American Don Draper, who wins as many hearts as he breaks.
Aatif Rashid is the author of Portrait of Sebastian Khan. He’s published short stories in The Massachusetts Review, Metaphorosis, and Arcturus, and nonfiction in The Los Angeles Review of Books as well as online on Medium. He currently writes weekly for The Kenyon Review Blog about fiction writing and literature.
