Inheritance. The concept of passing on something of yourself to a future generation. But what does it mean to the receivers, to the people that are stuck with whatever lot they are given? Mitchell Jackson (The Residue Years) and Adam Haslett (Imagine Me Gone) explore these complicated ideas in their own stories, examining privilege and mental health, drug abuse and poverty through two different families each grasping for their own versions of identity and success. Join us as we delve into the messy world of inheritance, and ask yourself: what have you inherited?
