In conjunction with the Georgia Center for the Book, please join us for an evening reading and panel discussion with Aruni Kashyap of Georgia and Cinelle Barnes and Gary Jackson of South Carolina featuring their recently published anthology A Measure of Belonging.

Assembled by editor and essayist Cinelle Barnes, essays in A Measure of Belonging: Writers of Color on the New American South acknowledge that from the DMV to the college basketball court to doctors’ offices, there are no shortage of places of tension in the American South. Urgent, necessary, funny, and poignant, these essays from new and established voices confront the complexities of the South’s relationship with race, uncovering the particular difficulties and profound joys of being a Southerner in the 21st century.
