Acclaimed novelist T. Geronimo Johnson will be reading from his work. His most recent book, the bestselling Welcome to Braggsville, follows four college students who stage a “performative intervention” during a Civil War reenactment in Georgia. Johnson has taught writing at some of the most prestigious programs in the country, and he has also worked on, at, or in brokerages, kitchens, construction sites, phone rooms, education non-profits, writing centers, summer camps, ladies shoe stores, nightclubs, law firms, offset print shops, and a political campaign. His novels have garnered many awards, including being named a 2013 PEN/Faulkner Award finalist, longlisted for the National Book Award, and included on Time Magazine’s list of the top ten books of 2015. This and all VWS events is free and open to the public, and snacks will be provided!
