Description

In this audiovisual recording from Friday, March 22, 2019, as part of the 50th Annual UND Writers Conference: “What the Future Holds,” Kiese Laymon reads excerpts from his book Heavy: An American Memoir. Laymon also responds to audience questions about how he got to the point where he was able to write Heavy, what he would changed in Heavy if he could, whether there are topics he is unable to write about, if writing through trauma is an appropriate thing for a creative writing professor to ask undergraduates to do, the physical act of writing, and others.

Introduced by Joshua Carter.
