I was first introduced to Danzy Senna‘s work by a coworker at Thomson Reuters, who was reading Caucasia. If you have ever pondered the parodoxes of your multi-hued family, or your ancestry, or even your “race,” you should read some of Senna’s work.
Now she’s back with Where Did You Sleep Last Night? What a great title, which completely speaks to issues of family, love and abandonment.
She will be in NY this month:
Wednesday, May 27, 2009 @ 7 p.m.
In conversation with Rebecca Walker
New York Public Library Cullman Center for Scholars and Writers
Fifth Ave. and 42nd St.
