This event is presented in partnership with our friends at Books & Books in Miami.

Jonny Sun is back with a collection of essays and other writings in his unique, funny, and heartfelt style. The pieces in Goodbye, Again range from long meditations on topics like loneliness and being an outsider, to short humor pieces, conversations, and memorable one-liners.

Jonny's honest writings about his struggles with feeling productive, as well as his difficulties with anxiety and depression will connect deeply with his fans as well as anyone attempting to create in our chaotic world. It also features a recipe for scrambled eggs that might make you cry.

Jonny Sun is the best-selling author and illustrator of everyone’s a aliebn when ur a aliebn too and the illustrator of Gmorning, Gnight! by Lin-Manuel Miranda. He was a writer for the Emmy-nominated sixth season of the Netflix Original Series BoJack Horseman, and is currently writing a movie, a new book, and multiple other projects. As a doctoral candidate at MIT and a creative researcher at the Harvard metaLAB, he studies social media, virtual place, and online community.

He will be in conversation with Clint Smith, staff writer at The Atlantic and author of Counting Descent, which won the 2017 Literary Award for Best Poetry Book from the Black Caucus of the American Library Association, and was a finalist for an NAACP Image Award. His writing has been published in The New Yorker, The New York Times Magazine, Poetry Magazine, The Paris Review, and elsewhere. He currently teaches writing and literature at the DC Central Detention Facility. His debut nonfiction book, How the Word Is Passed, explores how different historical sites reckon with—or fail to reckon with—their relationship to the history of slavery; it will be published in June.
