Punching the Air: A Conversation with Ibi Zoboi and Yusef Salaam
5:30 pm - 6:15 pm
Sunday, November 1, 2020

Unfortunately, the authors needed to cancel because of technical difficulties (something we are familiar with ourselves!). We’re working with the authors on the possibility of another conversation very soon.

Join National Book Award Finalist Ibi Zoboi and activist Yusef Salaam of the Exonerated Five for a featured conversation about their recent collaboration, Punching the Air—an unforgettable novel in verse that gives voice to America’s incarcerated youth through the perspective of a talented, wrongfully accused young artist whose future is suddenly derailed by juvenile detention.
