Transition 118 Event - The use of research in creative writing
Join Transition on November 20th, 7pm at the Harvard Book Store for a conversation between issue 118 contributor Kaitlyn Greenidge (Nymphadora of Spring City, 1929—an excerpt from her forthcoming novel We Love You, Charlie Freeman) and her sister, playwright Kirsten Greenidge, whose play Milk Like Sugar will open at the Huntington Theatre in January 2016.
These award-winning authors both utilize historical research in their work and will talk on the uses, misuses, and limits of research in creative writing.
Co-sponsored with the Harvard Book Store
This event is free; no tickets are required.
Born in Africa and bred in the diaspora, Transition is a unique forum for the freshest, most compelling, most curious ideas about race. Since its founding in Uganda in 1961, the magazine has kept apace of the rapid transformation of the black world and has remained a leading forum of intellectual debate. Now, in an age that demands ceaseless improvisation, they aim to be both an anchor of deep reflection on black life and a map charting new routes through the globalized world.
Transition is a publication of the Hutchins Center at Harvard University, published three times annually by Indiana University Press.
