Jabari Asim on Yonder with John Keene

February 8, 2022 via Zoom

PEN finalist and critically acclaimed author Jabari Asim returns with a “wholly engrossing and expertly executed” historical novel; Yonder follows two enslaved couples in the Antebellum South, who use love, language, and a touch of magical realism as a means of survival. Award-winning author John Keene (Counternarratives) joined Asim for a conversation on this elegant work of monumental imagination that reorients how we think of the legacy of America’s shameful past.
