Endnote: Natasha Trethewey

October 4, 2020 @ 4:30 PM 5:30 PM

Join Rosemary Magee, festival board member and Director Emerita of the Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives, & Rare Book Library, and author Natasha Trethewey for a discussion of the latter’s memoir, Memorial Drive. The memoir grapples with the South’s history through the lens of Trethewey’s life and the life of her mother, who was murdered by Trethewey’s former step-father. Memorial Drive dives deep into a shared human experience of sudden loss and absence, but also into the enduring ripple effects of white racism and domestic abuse in the American South. Join us in wrapping up the online festival by engaging in this compelling conversation with one of America’s greatest poets.
