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 final installment of this season’s Hugo Literary Series, three writers and a musician take on the theme “Strange Appetites.”
Featuring Pulitzer Prize finalist Karen Russell, author of Swamplandia! and Orange World; black Southern writer Kiese Laymon, who wrote the award-winning memoir Heavy; and bestselling local novelist Tara Conklin, with new music from singer-songwriter performance duo Little Spirits.
