Confronting Tomorrow. At the intersection of youth and adulthood, three young protagonists and their friends and families confront realities that change their lives. Joanne Hillhouse (Musical Youth) Tanwi Nandini Islam (Bright Lines), and Matthew McGevna (Little Beasts) deal with actions that change one and cannot be changed. Short readings and discussion. Moderated by Ian Maloney, St. Francis College.
Other Caribbean authors scheduled for the book fair include Marlon James, Esmeralda Santiago, Tiphanie Yanique, Naomi Jackson, and Edwidge Dandicat (if I’m missing anyone, forgive me).
