Turn the Page – Human Rights–Human Wrongs: Writing on Immigration

More than a book club, Turn the Page becomes an agent for change, an evolution in thought brought about by a conversation with authors who have their fingers on the pulse of history, so therefore insight in the human heart. Each segment will bring two of our winning authors together to discuss a subject their works have in common. Gilbert King, a DLPP Honorary Advisory Board member, the 2013 DLPP Runner-up for The Devil in the Grove and the Pulitzer Prize winner for the same title, will moderate the segments.

The next Turn the Page event scheduled for May 20, 2021, at 7:00 PM EST will feature a discussion between Patricia Engel, the 2017 Fiction Winner for The Veins of the Ocean, and Edwidge Danticat, the 2008 Nonfiction Winner for Brother, I’m Dying. Both authors have written about the overwhelming obstacles faced by those forced by war and danger to immigrate and the pain of leaving one’s home country to be redefined in another as a refugee.

Register here to attend the third Turn the Page event, Human Rights-Human Wrongs: Writing about Immigration with Patricia Engel & Edwidge Danticat.

A Zoom link will be emailed to registered participants from Zoom ([email protected]) on May 19, 2021.

The event is finished.
