Annia Ciezadlo 

Cedar Crest College’s department of history, literature and languages will host author and journalist Annia Ciezadlo for an online reading at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 23, 2021. The event is part of the department’s Visiting Writers Series and is open to the public.

Annia Ciezadlo is an author and journalist who writes about food, politics and how people survive catastrophes. She has covered wars, revolutions, refugees, climate change and coronavirus, often from the same place: the kitchen. She used her experience covering wars in Beirut and Baghdad to write the award-winning book “Day of Honey: A Memoir of Food, Love, and War,” which won the American Book Award; Books for a Better Life Award; and was a finalist for the Dayton Literary Peace Prize, the James Beard Foundation Award, and Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers Award. Her nonfiction writing from Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and elsewhere has appeared in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Granta, Guernica, Foreign Affairs, The New Republic, The Nation and other publications. Ciezadlo teaches creative nonfiction writing this semester at Cedar Crest College.
