Kiese Laymon in conversation with Maurice Carlos Ruffin discussing his book, Heavy: An American Memoir. Thursday, October 18, 2018, 6-7:30 PM. Garden District Book Shop, 2727 Prytania St.
Kiese will sign books after the discussion.
A personal narrative that illuminates national failures, Heavy is defiant yet vulnerable, an insightful, often comical exploration of weight, identity, art, friendship, and family that begins with a confusing childhood—and continues through twenty-five years of haunting implosions and long reverberations.
