Heavy: Author Reading and Q&A

Setup

In his new memoir, Kiese Laymon writes about growing up in Jackson, MS, and charts his complex relationship with his mother, grandmother, anorexia, obesity, sex, writing, and ultimately gambling. The Atlantic says, “You won’t be able to put [this memoir] down…It is packed with reminders of how black dreams get skewed and deferred, yet are also pregnant with the possibility that a kind of redemption may lie in intimate grappling with black realities.” Stick around after the event for a book signing with Kiese Laymon. Presented in partnership with Aspen Words.
