#ScribdChat: Race, Identity and the New Great American Stories

  • The Laundry - San Francisco 3359 26th Street San Francisco, CA, 94110 United States (map)

In Partnership with The New York Times

How can great fiction writing help us contend with painful issues of race and identity?

In “There There,” one of The Times’s 10 Best Books of 2018Tommy Orange follows 12 characters from Native communities, exploring the notion of belonging. And the stories in Nana Kwame Adjei-Brenyah’s Friday Black,” a Times 100 Notable Books selection, present dystopian worlds that expose some of the injustices black Americans face daily.

The Times's national correspondent John Eligon talks candidly with Orange and Adjei-Brenyah on how they’ve addressed race and identity through storytelling.
