Race. Class. Identity. Internet Culture. What could possibly go wrong? Presented at ANTIDOTE November 2020
Join Kiley Reid, author of 2020's bestseller Such a Fun Age, for a wide-ranging discussion of some of the biggest issues of our times. Hosted by Jan Fran.
It's rare that a debut novel makes the sort of impact as Kiley Reid's Such a Fun Age, which has quickly become one of the most talked-about books of the year. But it's also rare that a novel so perfectly encapsulates the big themes of our times. Expect a dynamic exploration of racism in all its forms, from the overt to the subtly hypocritical. When do allies become exploiters, why is class so often overlooked in critiques of injustice, and how can we navigate difficult conversations about social structures when so much of this discourse takes place online? Be part of an unmissable conversation with an author who understands that life is rarely black and white.
