"We Need to Talk About an Injustice."

Bryan Stevenson and Sister Helen Prejean in conversation at the NYPL:http://www.showclix.com/event/3863106

“For me, there’s a power in tracking the way that fictions are made, the way that lived experience becomes material for fiction. And for me that requires a first person who’s me and not me so that I can kind of make the process of the way lived experience gets transposed into fiction a part of the work.”

For those who missed the critically acclaimed Ben Lerner earlier this month, fret not! Check out this blog which captures some of the gems from his conversation.

Satrapi speaks our language -  the language of books, that is.  

Join LIVE in welcoming her the NYPL on Friday, October 17.  Be sure to get yours tickets now: http://www.showclix.com/event/SATRAPI

“So many of the voices in fiction that are out there are deeply neurotic white male stories of how, ‘Oh, I had weird sex, I can’t figure things out, I’m going to ramble for 300 pages, you better sit still because I’m a tour de force,’ ” Ms. Maduka said. “I kind of felt like, I really don’t want to sit still for this.”

“Literature, from women of any race and men of any race, besides white, would always be pigeonholed as, ‘Now I’m going to tell you my Nigerian story,’ ” she added, “And it was so tiring.” (via Uzoamaka Maduka Leaves a Paper Trail With the American Reader - NYTimes.com)

Uzoamaka Maduka brings her insight to the NYPL when she moderates a discussion about what constitutes poetry with experimental and adventurous poets Bernadette Mayer, Matthea Harvey and Dorothea Lasky.
