Contribute to Support Harvard Book Store
While payment is not required, we are suggesting a $3 contribution to support this author series, our staff, and the future of Harvard Book Store—a locally owned, independently run Cambridge institution. In addition, by purchasing a copy of Ancestors on harvard.com, you support indie bookselling and the writing community during this difficult time.
It is rare now for people to stay where they were raised, and when we encounter one another—whether in person or online—it is usually in contexts that obscure, if not outright hide, details about our past. But even in moments of pure self-invention, we are always shaped by the past.
In Ancestors, some of today's most imaginative writers—including science fiction master Samuel R. Delany, U.S. Poet Laureate Joy Harjo, and novelist Zadie Smith—consider what it means to be made and fashioned by others.
Harvard Book Store’s award-winning event series continues online! Named "Best of Boston: 2020 Best Virtual Author Series" by Boston magazine.
A political and literary forum, independent and nonprofit since 1975. Learn more at bostonreview.net.
