Ahead of the 73rd National Book Awards, 2022 honorees Fatimah Asghar (When We Were Sisters, Fiction) and Shelley Wong (As She Appears, Poetry) read from and discuss their selected works. Asghar’s debut novel and Wong’s debut poetry collection delve into queerness and freedom, and imagine a new idea of homecoming, across literary genres.
