At the Southern Festival of Books, join two National Book Award Finalists, novelist Brandon Hobson (Where the Dead Sit Talking) and poet Danez Smith (Don’t Call Us Dead), for a conversation on writing that will explore what it means to fight for more than just survival in contemporary America and the realities of queer and Native bodies living in rural Oklahoma to Minnesota.


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