Friday, March 6, 2020
3:20 pm to 4:35 pm


While America is still gravely divided, in both a political sense and a fracturing of media, more and more women, people of color, and queer writers are podcasting to claim their space in the literary world. A diverse panel of podcast hosts will discuss their shows and what they add to the literary landscape. These fearless podcast hosts will illustrate what it means to have Us not just “represented,” but in charge, crafting our own narratives on books and culture.
