The 2019–2020 Hugo Literary Series season is the second in our new home. We’ve spent our first year here working to widen the scope of the region’s literary community, actively bringing in writers who are using their work to question, challenge, and rewrite the narratives our culture passes down to us.
Like many of you, we’ve been thinking a lot about the world we live in, about what separates us and what brings us together.
This season, we want to explore those separations: What is it that divides us from each other, from what we hope for, dream of, deserve, or crave? And what are we going to do about it?
In the third installment of this season’s Hugo Literary Series, three writers and a musician take on the theme “Behind Closed Doors.”
Featuring former Marine and Jarhead author Anthony Swofford; Mitchell S. Jackson, author of The Residue Years and Survival Math: Notes on an All-American Family; and acclaimed fiction writer and essayist Charles D’Ambrosio, with new music from R&B soul singer JusMoni.
