Join Pioneer Works and One World for an evening of reimagining history, building new worlds, and liberating stories from the grips of old narratives featuring Jordy Rosenberg, Ta-Nehisi Coates, Kali Fajardo-Anstine, and Mira Jacob.
Following the readings and conversation with the authors, join us for dancing in the North Hall.
Jordy Rosenberg launches his groundbreaking debut novel Confessions of the Fox, a sui generis work of radical and riveting literary art—“resonant of George Saunders, of Nikolai Gogol, and of nothing that’s ever been written before,” says Booklist.
Ta-Nehisi Coates (We Were Eight Years In Power: An American Tragedy) reads from his highly anticipated debut-novel-in-progress, a boldly imagined recreation of the world of slavery and freedom, retold as a story of spies and secret identities, love, betrayal, trauma, and hidden power.
Kali Fajardo-Anstine reads from her work-in-progress, Sabrina & Corina, a debut short-story collection that brings to life the world of indigenous and Chicana women in the American west—a powerful meditation on female friends, mothers and daughters, and the deep-rooted truths of our homelands.
Mira Jacob (Sleepwalker’s Guide to Dancing) reads from her work-in-progress, Good Talk—a hilarious and heartbreaking graphic memoir that grapples with the toughest conversation about family, race, love, and American identity—and the ways they change us.
One World is the home of groundbreaking writers, thinkers, activists, and artists. They aim to publish the boldest, most original works of fact and imagination from a diverse group of excellent writers—riveting narratives that give us a new language to understand our past, imagine our future, and see our present in all its complexity.
