A dark-skinned adult sitting in profile, seen from the shoulders up. They wear a red sweater, gold earrings, and their hair tied up in a black headscarf. They sit in an auditorium, with blurry figures filling the seats in the background.

Event Description

How do authors engage with intersectional identities?

Human society has a history of categorizing people based on identity markers such as race, class, gender, sexuality, ability, religion, and many others. We as individuals, however, are so much more complex than our identity markers would suggest. Join us for a complicated and challenging discussion of intersections, featuring novelists Min Jin Lee (Pachinko), Tope Folarin (A Particular Kind of Black Man), and Douglas Stuart (Shuggie Bain). The conversation will be moderated by writer and book critic Bethanne Patrick. Live captioning will be available for this event.
