Writing Against Stereotype: African-American Characters in the Fiction of Danielle Evans
Sunday, September 18, 2:00pm
The New York Times Book Review says about Danielle Evans’ short story collection Before You Suffocate Your Own Fool Self: “Evans follows girls and young women who are intelligent, gutsy and black….Rather than limiting the collection’s gaze, this perspective amplifies the universal pitfalls of coming of age in 21st-century America.” Evans recently won the PEN/Robert W. Bingham prize for fiction.
