Guernica and the Brooklyn Public Library's Race in Publishing Discussion Series: Non Fiction Edition

You’re invited to join as Brooklyn Public Library and Guernica present the first of a series of three discussions on race in publishing.

In June, Guernica published a themed issue exploring Race in America, with an investment in helping to create meaningful conversation, broaden our community, and develop actionable steps for us and for our peers to ensure that a truly representative array of American voices are showcased in the work we publish.

Join Jamilah King (Colorlines), Kiese Laymon (How to Slowly Kill Yourself and Others in America) and Ken Chen (Asian American Writers’ Workshop) as they discuss the challenges and opportunities that journalists, essayists, and nonfiction writers of color face. Moderated by Lisa Lucas (Guernica).
