Novelist Brandon Hobson (Where the Dead Sit Talking, National Book Award Finalist) and poet Danez Smith (Don’t Call Us Dead, National Book Award Finalist) follow their appearance at the Southern Festival of Books to discuss literature that resists stereotypes and centers contemporary Americans struggling for more than survival both on and off the page. This event is open to students, faculty, and community members at Fisk University and to the public.


Moderated by Ciona Rouse, poet and co-host of the literary podcast Re/VERB.
