2019 National Book Award Nonfiction Longlisters Hanif Abdurraqib (Go Ahead in The Rain: Notes to A Tribe Called Question) and Iliana Regan (Burn the Place) continue their conversation mainstage at the twenty-seventh Oxford Conference of the Book. Abdurraqib and Regan discuss the heart of food, music, and place—from the makings of an iconic rap group to a Michelin-starred restaurant—and the power of personal storytelling.
