CHQ Authors Convening: Joshua Bennett and Director of Literary Arts Sony Ton-Aime
7 p.m. EST Wednesday, Dec. 15, 2020 assembly.chq.org
Joshua Bennett returns to Chautauqua to discuss his new book of poetry, Owed — a collection of odes that seek to celebrate the places and people that have been wronged for too long. Bennett calls them “poems of reparation” for himself. He will be in conversation with Director of Literary Arts Sony Ton-Aime. Together, they will discuss the collection, Blackness in America, struggle, hope and creativity. They will also briefly discuss Bennett’s other new book, Being Property Once Myself.
