Author Crystal Wilkinson will discuss and read from her latest work, Perfect Black, a book of poems and legends about ancestry, culture, and the terrain of a black girl becoming. Visual and multidisplinary artist Lucy Kim will discuss her transition from traditional painting and photography to her less vison-centric, more visceral, three-dimensional work. Novelist Hari Kunzru will introduce and read from Blue Ruin, his third novel in a trilogy about music, literature, and visual art. Listen to the thinking that went into their work and join them in a Q&A afterward.
