Journalist Tim Murphy will interview Lucas Rocha on his engrossing debut novel Where We Go From Here, a moving and honest portrayal of three gay young adults in Brazil whose lives become intertwined in the face of HIV.

Inside and Out is a new series from The Center for Fiction to run this Pride Month 2020! The  series offers solace and affirmation to the LGBTQ+ community during a time of isolation from trusted social groups and support networks. Featuring a phenomenal line-up of authors whose books center the unique experiences of queer characters, conversations will explore how sexuality and gender identity intersect with race, class, religion, and nationality.
