8M: How I Wrote This: Discussion of THIS WILL BE MY UNDOING by Morgan Jerkins
Limited Capacity seats available

We’re thrilled to welcome author Morgan Jerkins as our Muse 2019 Fellow in Non-Fiction, for her striking essay collection, This Will Be My Undoing: Living at the Intersection of Black, Female, and Feminist in (White) America. Jerkins is lauded as "a deft cartographer of black girlhood and womanhood" (Roxane Gay), and readers can join her for an in-person discussion with author Kim McLarin on her writing process. Pre-reading the collection is recommended, but not required!

This event is free & open to the public! If you're not attending the Muse, RSVP here.
