How do fictional narratives weaving through intimate and collective histories allow us to see our trappings and imagine futures where we are all more free? This reading and discussion features award-winning writers Zinzi Clemmons, author of What We Lose (2017), and Crystal Hana Kim, author of If You Leave Me (2018), whose works explore the intimate legacies of political upheaval, race, migration, sexuality, motherhood, trauma and loss, and the malleability of memory.
