P&P Live!: Natasha Trethewey – Memorial Drive: A Daughter's Memoir – in conversation with Lisa Page

Upcoming Event
Monday, July 27, 2020 - 7:00pm

This event will be streamed online as part of our P&P Live! Series. 

At age nineteen, Natasha Trethewey had her world turned upside down when her former stepfather shot and killed her mother. Grieving and still new to adulthood, she confronted the twin pulls of life and death in the aftermath of unimaginable trauma and now explores the way this experience lastingly shaped the artist she became.

Memorial Drive is a compelling and searching look at a shared human experience of sudden loss and absence, but also a piercing glimpse at the enduring ripple effects of white racism and domestic abuse.

Trethewey will be in conversation with Lisa Page, co-editor of We Wear The Mask: 15 True Stories of Passing in America and Assistant Professor of English at the George Washington University.

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 always 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.
