Trouble the Water

10am EST


Racism, classism, distrust, and surveillance are just a few of the challenges one faces when trying to make earnest connections in lonely and trying times. But these stories just might contain the clues for a better future. Join award-winning novelist Kelli Jo Ford (Crooked Hallelujah), 5 Under 35 honoree Tracy O’Neill (Quotients), and New York Times best-selling debut author Kiley Reid (Such a Fun Age) for a discussion about some of the thorniest issues plaguing society today and how they affect human relationships. Moderated by Meakin Armstrong, senior fiction editor at Guernica.
