Event Description

Join the Schomburg Center Literary Festival for a conversation with three extraordinary writers– Roxane Gay, Mahogany L. Browne and Tracy K. Smith–as they discuss the clarion call of Audre Lorde’s work in the context of today’s political warfare and the recent republication of Sister Outsider and The Cancer Journals and a new publication The Selected Works of Audre Lorde.

Readers everywhere who wish to order copies of Sister Outsider, The Cancer Journals, and The Selected Works of Audre Lorde can do so online at The Schomburg Shop. All proceeds benefit The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture.

Reading the African Diaspora expands our long tradition of championing authors of African descent from across the globe and publications that celebrate Black history and culture. The inaugural day-long book festival has been reconfigured as a virtual festival taking place over six days. The festival will feature readings, panel discussions, book selling and more for all ages, from prose to poetry, comic books to young adult novels, fiction and non-fiction.
