May 6 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm PDT$500
Litquake is excited to welcome Natalie Baszile, author of the New York Times bestseller Queen Sugar (now a series on OWN network) to our Seismic Salon series! Natalie has made the leap from fiction to nonfiction in her newest book, We Are Each Other’s Harvest: Celebrating African American Farmers Land and Legacy, which is published April 6. This anthology of poetry, essays, and interviews examines Black people’s connection to the American land, from Emancipation to today. Natalie has a M.A. in Afro-American Studies from UCLA, and is a graduate of Warren Wilson College’s MFA Program for Writers. Queen Sugar was named one of the San Francisco Chronicle’s Best Books of 2014, and nominated for an NAACP Image Award. Her nonfiction work has appeared in Lenny Letter, The Bitter Southerner, O, The Oprah Magazine, The Rumpus, and a number of anthologies.
