The Pat Conroy Literary Center and the Authors on the Air Global Radio Network proudly present executive director Jonathan Haupt in conversation with Cinelle Barnes, Ivelisse Rodriguez, and Natalia Sylvester, the editor and two of the contributing writers to A Measure of Belonging: Twenty-One Writers of Color on the New American South, a New York Times Book Review Notable Book published by Hub City Press in Spartanburg, South Carolina, with sales supporting the Southern Poverty Law Center. ABOUT A MEASURE OF BELONGING: Assembled by editor and essayist Cinelle Barnes, essays in A Measure of Belonging acknowledge that from the DMV to the college basketball court to doctors' offices, there are no shortage of places of tension in the American South. Urgent, necessary, funny, and poignant, these essays from new and established voices confront the complexities of the South's relationship with race, uncovering the particular difficulties and profound joys of being a Southerner in the 21st century. This collection celebrates the incredible diversity in the contemporary South by featuring essays by twenty-one of the finest young writers of color living and working in the region today. "Sharp and witty, this collection shows that there are many different ways to live, breathe, thrive and be a person who belongs in the South." --Bookpage, starred review
