Powell’s Books Presents Ari Honarvar in Conversation With Ashleigh Renard
September 24 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Ari Honarvar is the founder of Rumi With A View, dedicated to building music and poetry bridges across war-torn and conflictridden borders. Her writing has appeared in The Guardian, Teen Vogue, Washington Post, and elsewhere. She is the author of the oracle card set and book, Rumi’s Gift. She lives in San Diego, where she has befriended a hummingbird named Taadon.
A former figure skating coach and choreographer, Ashleigh Renard took the quest for perfectionism into marriage and motherhood, with some disastrous and hilarious results. In recovery from taking herself too seriously, she’s built a committed mass-following who tune in daily for her fresh, no-fuss advice on everything from keeping monogamy hot, to renegotiating a marriage, to getting kids to clean the house (because nothing makes her prouder than child labor). Her debut memoir, Swing, has been called, “The funniest, sexiest, most deeply felt memoir you will read this year.” You can find her on Tiktok and Instagram @ashleighrenard.
