In conjunction with The End of Eddy
Presented by BAM at the Brooklyn Book Festival

Nicole Dennis-Benn, Casey Gerald, and T Kira Madden join Alexander Chee for a conversation about their books, which each pay specific attention to how class, race, sexuality, and nationality change our sense of what a coming out story even is, and what might define a coming-of-age story now. This discussion is presented in conjunction with Édouard Louis’ autobiographically inspired novel and its stage adaptation being presented at BAM as part of Next Wave 2019.
