We are delighted–psyched, actually–to be hosting Andre Perry in conversation with Darrell Stover at the 2020 NC Book Festival.
Andre Perry is an essayist and arts advocate. He received his MFA from the University of Iowa’s Nonfiction Writing Program and his work has appeared in The Believer, Catapult, Granta and other journals. He co-founded Iowa City’s Mission Creek Festival, a celebration of music and literature, as well as the multidisciplinary festival of creative process, Witching Hour. He continues to live and work in Iowa City. Some of Us Are Very Hungry Now–published by our friends at Two DollarRadio–is his first book.
Darrell Stover is a poet, performer, scholar, lecturer and programmer of cultural events. He teaches courses in Africana Studies and Interdisciplinary Studies at North Carolina State University, including Black Popular Culture: From the Blues to Afrofuturism, and was the Program Director and Statewide Coordinator for the North Carolina Humanities council.
Andre Perry and Darrell Stover will be at Kings on Saturday, February 22nd at 2pm.
