Solitude Social Club: A Bookish Happy Hour with Jabari Asim
Solitude Social Club is Hugo House’s offering to readers and writers seeking connection during the social quarantine.
Each week we’ll bring a guest writer to share a drink and discuss how they’re finding happiness through art and literature in these distancing times. After the conversation, we’ll break out into smaller groups and get to know one another.
RSVP at the “Tickets” link to join the Zoom conversation, or find us streaming on Facebook Live.
All events happen at 5 p.m. PST / 8 p.m. EST.
Jabari Asim is the author of seven books for adults — including We Can’t Breathe: On Black Lives, White Lies, and the Art of Survival — and ten books for children. His poems are included in several anthologies, including Furious Flower: African American Poetry from the Black Arts Movement to the Present; Beyond the Frontier: African American Poetry for the 21st Century; and Role Call: A Generational Anthology of Social and Political Black Literature & Art. He directs the MFA program in creative writing at Emerson College.
