An Evening with Transition Magazine
November 20, 2015
8:00 PM ET
Harvard Book Store
1256 Massachusetts Ave., Cambridge, MA 02138
This event is free; no tickets are required.
Join Harvard Book Store and Transition for a conversation with issue 118 contributor KAITLYN GREENIDGE—author of "Nymphadora of Spring City, 1929," an excerpt from her forthcoming book We Love You, Charlie Freeman—and her sister, playwright KIRSTEN GREENIDGE, whose play Milk Like Sugar will open at the Huntington Theatre in January 2016. These award-winning authors both utilize historical research in their work and will talk on the uses, misuses, and limits of research in creative writing.
Walking from the Harvard Square T station: 2 minutes
As you exit the station, reverse your direction and walk east along Mass. Ave. in front of the Cambridge Savings Bank. Cross Dunster St. and proceed along Mass. Ave for three more blocks. You will pass Au Bon Pain, JP Licks, and TD Bank. Harvard Book Store is located at the corner of Mass. Ave. and Plympton St.
Born in Africa and bred in the diaspora, Transition is a unique forum for the freshest, most compelling, most curious ideas about race. Since its founding in Uganda in 1961, the magazine has kept apace of the rapid transformation of the black world and has remained a leading forum of intellectual debate. Now, in an age that demands ceaseless improvisation, they aim to be both an anchor of deep reflection on black life and a map charting new routes through the globalized world.
Transition is a publication of the Hutchins Center at Harvard University, published three times annually by Indiana University Press. Find Transition on Twitter at @Transition_Mag and on the web at http://hutchinscenter.fas.harvard.edu/transition. Transition partners with Harvard Book Store several times a year for a discussion based on their latest issue.
