Jessica Au & Stephanie Sy-Quia: Dreams of a Common Language

Novelist Jessica Au and poet Stephanie Sy-Quia consider relationships across the generations and the possibilities of language in two spellbinding works of art. Winner of the 2020 Novel Prize, Au’s debut novella, Cold Enough for Snow, meditates on the nature of connection. Sy-Quia’s first collection of poems, Amnion, is an epic chronicle of family and migration. Join us for what is sure to be a riveting conversation with writer and activist Jessica Gaitán Johannesson.

Jessica Au is appearing remotely.
