Hosted by Devlin Prince, Writers in Color Bookclub:Rotating between fiction and nonfiction, the goal is to enjoy and grow our knowledge of the writing accomplished by Black, South Asian, Native, Latinx, and many other authors of color. Come listen, discuss, and learn how the words of those usually underrepresented in literature can fit within the world we live in today.

Indeed, any one of these problems and stories could be the plot of a separate novel, but Golden connects them seamlessly and compassionately, treating each with the prismatic complexity that defines family crises. In doing so, she makes each character's past an integral part of their present, as well as their impetus to move forward into a new and unexpected future."—Melissa Firman, Shelf Awareness, starred review👀 View the book: https://twodollarradiohq.com/wide-circumference-of-love* Free and open to the public with no signup required.
