Coming Out and Of Age

September 22, 2019

Production Language English
Country of Origin United States
Description Nicole Dennis-Benn, Casey Gerald, and T Kira Madden join Alexander Chee for a conversation about their books, which each pay specific attention to how class, race, sexuality, and nationality change our sense of what a coming out story even is, and what might define a coming-of-age story now. This discussion is presented in conjunction with Édouard Louis’ autobiographically inspired novel and its stage adaptation being presented at BAM as part of Next Wave 2019. Presented by BAM at the Brooklyn Book Festival.
