Virtual AWP: Conversations with Writers featuring Maurice Carlos Ruffin & Regina Brooks

We are thrilled to share this Virtual AWP event featuring author of We Cast a Shadow, Maurice Carlos Ruffin interviewed by Regina Brooks, AWP Board Member and CEO of Serendipity Literary Agency. We Cast a Shadow, published by One World Random House, named a Best Book of the Year by NPR and a finalist for the PEN/Faulkner Award, has been described as “an incisive and necessary debut…a chilling, unforgettable cautionary tale and one we should all read and heed,” by Roxane Gay. The interview delves into themes of race, white supremacy, and social injustice as Maurice shares the influences behind his writing.
