P&P Live!: Brit Bennett - The Vanishing Half - in partnership with Girls Night In

Upcoming Event
Saturday, June 6, 2020 - 7:00pm

This event will be streamed online as part of our P&P Live! Series in partnership with Girls Night In

From The New York Times-bestselling author of The Mothers, Brit Bennett brings us a stunning new novel about twin sisters, inseparable as children, who ultimately choose to live in two very different worlds, one black and one white. Weaving together multiple strands and generations of this family, from the Deep South to California, from the 1950s to the 1990s, Bennett produces a story that is at once a riveting, emotional family story and a brilliant exploration of the American history of passing.

Bennett will be in conversation with Jazmine Hughes, a story editor for The New York Times Magazine. She is also one of the recipients of the 2020 ASME Next Awards, celebrating journalists under 30.


Instead of a set ticket price, we ask that you contribute what you can to support Politics and Prose Bookstore and our virtual event series. We know that everyone has been affected in these trying times, and we will continue to make our programming accessible to all. That said, a suggested contribution of $5, $10, whatever you can afford, will go a long way to keep our programming—and our bookstore—afloat as we are forced to adapt to new ways of business. 

The other way you can support us is by purchasing a copy of the book from our website.

We are so grateful to be surrounded by such a loyal and engaged community and we thank you for your support, now and always.
