Gathering of Voices

Jesmyn’s Book Selections

Stories full of life and transportive in nature that pack a powerful punch.

Here are worlds so real, they feel like home. Here are voices rich in joy and in stories. This Gathering of Voices celebrates cultural outsiders whose words blaze on the page and transport you to a time or place you’ve never experienced before. Not like this. Take a seat with us on this virtual porch, here in this imaginary pine-ringed clearing, and listen.
