Guest Author Kiese Laymon: Double Feature Reading says
Come see author Kiese Laymon deliver two readings from his most recent works: Long Division and How to Slowly Kill Yourself and Others in America. Hear a coming-of-age story set in post-Katrina Mississippi from Long Division. Then, a powerful collection of essays that explore the interconnected workings of family, history, race, violence, masculinity, love, celebrity and identity in How to Slowly Kill Yourself and Others in America.

Laymon's writings offer compelling meditations on how this nation's past and present times shape the possibilities and limits of love and forgiveness in the face of such violence, inviting us to imagine our way forward.

Made possible by The Charles H. Wright Museum in collaboration with The Wayne State University English Department's @Noon Reading Series. This event is FREE and open to the public.
