Our Fall 2013 School of Writing events season kicked off last night with a full house featuring Kiese Laymon, author of How to Slowly Kill Yourselves and Others in America and Long Division.
Laymon's brutally honest collection of essays and novel touch on race, gender, and sexual politics in his native Mississippi.
As Laymon stated while introducing his work, "You're allowed to laugh, and you're allowed to cry."
The event was moderated by School of Writing faculty member Jeffery Renard Allen.
