Book launch: Myisha Cherry presents Failures of Forgiveness: What We Get Wrong and How to Do Better
In conversation with Serene J. Khader
Wine reception to follow
Already known to the public one of the most original and distinctive voices in contemporary American philosophy, Myisha Cherry (The Case for Rage) triumphantly returns with the launch of Failures of Forgiveness: What We Get Wrong and How to Do Better. Powerfully framing forgiveness as both a philosophical conceit and an individualized practice, Failures of Forgiveness "explores how we should change our thinking about forgiveness, so that we can better understand our relationship not just to forgiveness, but to ourselves" (Jason Reynolds). Cherry assures readers, "We only have to learn to do forgiveness better, not perfectly." Serene J. Khaders joins us on the Greenlight stage to celebrate the inimitable Myisha Cherry, with discussion and a wine reception to follow.
