Aisha Sabatini Sloan and Barbara Browning (Dreaming of Ramadi in Detroit and The Gift)

Aisha Sabatini Sloan’s essays are atonce eccentric and piercing, ranging from meditations on art during a city-wideLA manhunt to a road trip with her father. She aims to continually trouble those territories where blackness has been conflated with death. Barbara Browning’s novel,situated at the tipping point of non-fiction, reflects on the aftermath of personal,technological and political maelstroms. They’ll read from their work and talkabout possible futures.
