Jesmyn Ward

MON, MAR 2: It’s Festival of the Arts Boca! Jesmyn Ward, the first woman and the first person of color to win two National Book Awards for fiction, for her books Salvage the Bones and Sing, Unburied, Sing, is a writer of uncommon power and eloquence who explores the bonds of community and familial love among poor African Americans in the rural South.

Ward is ailed as the standout writer of her generation, proving her “fearless and toughly lyrical” voice in novels, memoir, and nonfiction. In her talk this evening, she will share her writing process and how her experiences growing up poor and Black in the South continue to influence her work.
