Kristen Radtke on Seek You with Leslie Jamison

Clear

Tuesday, 6:00 pm EDT July 6, 2021

Online via Zoom

With many the world over stuck at home, the pandemic exposed a quieter epidemic that had already been ripping through America—the epidemic of loneliness. In emotionally charged drawings and deeply empathetic prose, Kristen Radtke’s newest book Seek You: A Journey Through American Loneliness navigates the different ways our inner lives interact with our public selves and the ways in which we attempt to feel closer to one another.

She’ll dig deeper into this topic and the July 16th release of her book in a conversation with Leslie Jamison, author of Make It Scream, Make It Burn and The Empathy Exams.
