Local Libraries LIT – Saeed Jones

April 1 @ 7:00 pm

Saeed Jones, author of Prelude to Bruise, and memoir, How We Fight for Our Lives, winner of the Kirkus Prize for Nonfiction, blends poetry and prose to share his story of growing up Black and gay in the American south. He recounts his fight to carve a place for himself within his family, his country, and his own hopes. His poems engage themes of intimacy, race and power. Jones combines ferocity and wit in his one-of-a-kind writing style and is sure to challenge attendees to further conversations within themselves and the community.
