Police State

Brooklyn Book Festival: Virtual Festival Day
Sunday, September 25, 3:00 PM ET
Police State
Featuring Jessamine Chan, Lidia Yuknavitch, and Mat Johnson
Moderated by Hirsh Sawhney

A mother struggling to find her footing under the weight of immigrant parent expectations, a time-traveler in search of freedom through the mysteries of the past, and a sociologist held captive by an unknown civilization on Jupiter. These protagonists are each forced to confront the abusive power and violence imposed upon them by the structures and forces that shape our worlds. Join Jessamine Chan (The School for Good Mothers), Lidia Yuknavitch (Thrust), and Mat Johnson (Invisible Things) as they come together to discuss their culturally pertinent and deeply prescient novels. Moderated by Hirsh Sawhney (South Haven).
