American Novelist Paul Harding at COMSATS!

On April 27, 2015, Department of Management Sciences organized a talk which provided attendees with the absolute pleasure of engaging in discussion with the esteemed American, musician turned novelist, Paul Harding. The talk was organized in collaboration with Inter University Consortium for the Promotion of Social Sciences, Arts, & Humanities.

 The author has a Bachelors of Arts in English from the University of Massachusetts Amherst and a Masters in Fine Arts from the Iowa Writer’s Workshop. He has been presiding writing classes in the University of Harvard and the University of Iowa. Mr. Harding is known for his bestselling debut novel ‘Tinkers’ and a subsequent novel ‘Enon’.

The guest speaker read excerpts from ‘Tinker’ which was, much to the delight of the attendants, breathtakingly detailed, emotional, and poetic. Afterwards, the author explained his writing style and technique which was the use of extended metaphors and turning real ideas into abstract, shared the challenges he faced whilst publishing his writing, explained how music and writing were connected as they were both art, answered questions, and offered some advice to young writers aspiring to be authors in the future. The author stated that he was immensely honored to be invited to COMSATS and that he was very impressed by Pakistani culture and values.

Dr. Nasser Ali Khan (Chairman of the Inter University Consortium for Promotion of Social Sciences and Vice Chancellor for University of Haripur) was also invited as a guest speaker. The chairman expressed that he was impressed by the intellectual quality of questions that were asked of Mr. Paul Harding by the attending students. He also advised students to read books not for the sake of impressing others but with the aim of gaining valuable knowledge.

Dr. Muhammad Zahid Iqbal (Head of Department of Management Sciences) presented the speakers with shields. Several senior faculty and administrative members were also present. The guests were served tea and lunch after the seminar was concluded.
