PEN America Presents: Writing in a World of Borders and Bonds
11:00 am - 11:45 am
Saturday, October 26, 2019
Capitol Extension Room E2.026
1100 Congress Avenue, Austin TX

Join Jennine Capó Crucet (My Time Among the Whites) and Margaret Wilkerson Sexton (The Revisioners) in conversation as they discuss their urgent and innovative approaches to writing about race, identity, culture, genre, and language in a world divided by borders and barriers—and explore the opportunity and obligation of storytelling to transcend them. Drawing from their recent work, they will discuss the shifting borders of place and migration, the powerful relationship between personal bonds and personal history, and what it means to belong, both now and in the future.

  • Moderated by: PEN America
