BUNK: Community Conversation & Writing Workshop

$0.00 Members
$0.00 Non-members

Join us for a community conversation and writing workshop based on Kevin Young's Bunk: The Rise of Hoaxes, Humbug, Plagiarists, Phonies, Post-Facts, and Fake News, in advance of his Writer's Studio events at RMCAD and Lighthouse Writers Workshop. In Bunk, Young traces the history of the hoax as a distinctly American phenomenon, exploring the roles of stereotype, suspicion, and racism as factors that have shaped fraudulent activities in our country, from P.T. Barnum through Donald Trump. Participants will review and discuss excerpts of Bunk and engage in a generative creative writing workshop led by Lighthouse facilitators. This workshop is free and open to the public and is hosted by the Blair Caldwell African American Research Library.
