Attend in person
The Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Negroland returns with Constructing a Nervous System, a memoir that is as far-ranging as it is intimate. The book takes its original form from moments of Margo Jefferson’s life that trouble her and restore her. Today, she examines how she was shaped by the jazz and blues musicians who soundtracked her childhood, seminal writers like W E B Du Bois and George Eliot and the words of family and friends. Chaired by Jess Brough.
