Reckoning with Personal History

Memoir has many functions, and among them is the opportunity to reckon with one’s personal history. Less often, it offers a chance to be surprised by it. When this happens, writers create space for shared experiences of both darkness and light, and forge a unique bond between author and reader. On this panel, memoirists Ada Calhoun (Also a Poet: Frank O’Hara, My Father, and Me), Hafizah Augustus Geter (The Black Period: On Personhood, Race, and Origin), and Hua Hsu (Stay True) reflect on family, art, and the search for self. Moderated by poet Naomi Extra (Ratchet Supreme).
