This is a night you do NOT want to miss. Our very own friend/client Morgan Jerkins is the author of the recently released and critically acclaimed This Will be my Undoing, which has just become a New York Times BESTSELLER, and her Uplift fam is thrilled to celebrate this incredible collection of essays with a big event on Monday, March 26th.
From one of the fiercest critics writing today, Morgan Jerkins’ highly-anticipated collection of linked essays interweaves her incisive commentary on pop culture, feminism, black history, misogyny, and racism with her own experiences to confront the very real challenges of being a black woman today—perfect for fans of Roxane Gay’s Bad Feminist, Rebecca Solnit’s Men Explain Things to Me, and Chimamanda Ngozie Adichie’s We Should All Be Feminists.
We'd encourage everyone to pick up and read the book in advance--we will discuss it in conjunction with Morgan, book-club-style, and then afterward she will lead a conversation about feminist writing, sharing her wisdom and ups and downs. So if you've ever been interested in memoir/essay-writing with a societal/political bent, bring your notebook and pen!
