Narrative Fiction: The First Thing I Saw Was Purple

In this episode, listen to a story about a seven-year-old girl, Talia, sent into a lavender field to find her mother. What happens when she quickly gets distracted?

Trigger warning: This story revolves around alcohol abuse.

This is the first episode of our new series, The Written Word: Narrative Fiction & Nonfiction Storytelling. Our storyteller is Lujain Assaf (Instagram: @lujaincreates Twitter: @LujainAssaf1), a junior at Northwestern University in Qatar and this is her short story, Lavender.

We hope that listening to fiction and nonfiction short stories, poems, and personal essays can make us feel more connected, especially during this time of social distancing and self-isolation.
