Deesha Philyaw: Between Herself and God
- Tue 16 Aug 18:15 - 19:15
- Northside Theatre
Attend in person
Black girls and women take some time off from being on their Sunday best behaviour in The Secret Lives of Church Ladies by Deesha Philyaw. In these refreshing short stories, female lives are seasoned with desire, despite the restrictions imposed by church, community and family: Olivia’s mother makes perfect peach cobbler for her married pastor; Lee flees her family for the embrace of another woman. Be seduced by this conversation with an award-winning author, chaired by Black feminist historian Jade Bentil.
Deesha Philyaw is appearing remotely.
