Ethics of Now: Kiese Laymon

February 28, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Kiese Laymon does not dissemble. 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.

Kiese Laymon’s books will be available for purchase at the event, provided by the Regulator Bookshop.

The Ethics of Now is a series of conversations between Duke historian Adriane Lentz Smith and a range of artists, advocates, and authors that explore the ethical challenges facing the Durham and Duke communities.”
