Brooklyn Book Festival panel on The Circle of Life: Generational Turmoil

  • Brooklyn Law School Student Lounge 250 Joralemon Street Brooklyn, NY, 11201 United States

In three brutally honest and beautifully written novels, three authors provide firsthand insight to the cyclical nature of life’s most painful experiences: Mitchell S. Jackson (The Residue Years) provides insight into the inescapable, roundabout nature of poverty and addiction; Alexander Maksik (Shelter in Place) traverses the hardships of inherited mental illness and hereditary violence; and Michelle Tea (Black Wave) portrays the effects of drinking, drugs, and gentrification. Moderated by Michele Filgate, National Book Critics Circle.
