Author Talks at the American Writers Museum

Author Talks at the American Writers Museum

Yes, we are all getting Zoomed out, but virtual events do make it much easier for us to attend events without dealing with traffic. The American Writers Museum in downtown Chicago is worth a visit one day, but in the meantime, they are offering a series of Author Talks that you might want to tune into. Here's the schedule for July:

Shirley: Live Q&A with Screenwriter Sarah Gubbins
Mon 6:30 PM 

Little Black Pearls for Little Black Girls
Sat 10:30 AMs

Crusade for Justice: The Autobiography of Ida B. Wells
Mon 11:30 AM 

My America: Adrianna Cuevas
Wed 6:30 PM

Natasha Trethewey: Memorial Drive
Wed 6:30 

The AWM also has a series of podcasts with authors that look interesting. The first one is with Sandra Cisneros and Fernando A. Flores discussing Flores latest novel Tears of the Trufflepig, their writing processes, and their experiences growing up in Mexican-American households. Later discussions include Viet Thanh Nguyen, Kao Kalia Yang, Vu Tran, Laila Lalami, Ngozi Ukazu, and David Treuer.
