Sleeping Alone: An Evening with Ru Freeman, Natashia Deón and Dolen Perkins-Valdez

Event Date: July 12, 2022 7:00 pm

In this collection of rich and textured stories about crossing borders, both real and imagined, Sleeping Alone asks one of the fundamental questions of our times: What is the toll of feeling foreign in one’s land, to others, or even to oneself? A cast of misfits, young and old, single and coupled, even entire family units, confront startling changes wrought by difficult circumstances or harrowing choices.

Books & Books, Miami Book Fair, Harvard Book Store and Politics and Prose presented this discussion in partnership.
