The Kenan Institute for Ethics invites you to a Do Snack with Kiese Laymon, author of best-selling Heavy: An American Memoir. By turns raw, real, fantastical, and funny, his memoirs and fiction articulate the slow death of living amidst state violence and the poetic transcendence of managing to keep on keeping on nonetheless. Personal but public, his writing speaks to and for all of us. Come for face-to-face conversation with a leading writer of non-fiction, whose work engages topics like state violence, the personal and the political, and bodily autonomy.
