CFA 2023 Keynote Address: Author Jennifer De Leon

October 20 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us for the CFA 2023 kick-off event with Keynote Speaker, Jennifer De Leon—editor, author, and professor of Creative Writing. In this honest and interactive talk, Jennifer will share some of the ways in which “story” can provide crucial insight into the complex intersection of race, class, and educational issues, dispelling myths and showcasing the diversity of our shared community’s experiences. She will reference excerpts from her books—the anthology, Wise Latinas: Writers on Higher Education, the Young Adult novels, Don’t Ask Me Where I’m From and Borderless, and the essay collection, White Space: Essays on Culture, Race, & Writing—and engage with audience questions and reflections. Celebrate the Power of Storytelling in community at the Concord Free Public Library’s Goodwin Forum as we kick off the 2023 Concord Festival of Authors!
