Inequality is one of the most pressing issues our country faces, and literature has something to say about it.  Join us as we celebrate the release of a new anthology, Tales of Two Americas: Stories of Inequality in a Divided Nation (Penguin Books), with the anthology’s editor John Freeman and two of its contributors, poet Lawrence Joseph and fiction writer Claire Vaye Watkins. Together, the trio will discuss this important topic and illuminate how creative writing has never been more critical.
