The National Book Foundation presents:
THE POWER OF SEXUALITY IN CONTEMPORARY LITERATURE WITH GARTH GREENWELL AND JUSTIN PHILLIP REED
In the Western world, sexuality is regularly demonized and shamed, making the subject difficult to navigate. But more and more, contemporary writing challenges this taboo, recognizing that desire in literature can function as a lens to examine issues of identity, race, gender, politics, and more. Join 2016 NBA Longlister Garth Greenwell (What Belongs to You) and 2018 NBA Winner Justin Phillip Reed (Indecency) as they parse the history and contemporary portrayal of sexuality in literature. Facilitated by NBF Public Programs Director Whitney Hu.
