Kweli International Lit Fest!

There’s still time to register for this weekend’s Kweli International Literary Festival. There’ll be a whole host of talented artists, writers, editors, agents, and all-around smart, gifted people there.

I’m honored to say that I get to teach a fiction craft class on Friday afternoon and join a Saturday morning panel called All This Was Once Ours. The panel includes Kali Fajardo-Anstine, author of Sabrina & Corina, and Kevin Maillard, author of Fry Bread, and we’ll go “beyond the myths” in a discussion about Indigenous & Latinx women and the American West.

If you’re in New York, please come through.

Kweli International Literary Festival is presented and hosted by Times Reads/The New York Times. The festival will take place over four days from July 18 - 21, 2019 and include readings from debut and award winning authors, master classes and workshops, lyric film screenings and panel discussions, live music and more. The main event takes place at the New York Times Conference Center on Saturday, July 20, 2019; 9AM-5PM.
