Kia Corthron + Robin D. G. Kelley

Tuesday February 9: 7:00PM 8:00PM

Kia Corthron, American playwright, screenwriter, and activist celebrates the highly anticipated release of her first novel, The Castle Cross the Magnet Carter. Her book sweeps American history from 1941 to the twenty-first century through the lives of four men--two white brothers from rural Alabama, and two black brothers from small-town Maryland.

Kia will be joined in conversation by Robin D.G. Kelley, one of the most distinguished experts on African American studies in the nation.
