How I Wrote This: Discussion of The Collected Schizophrenias by Esmé Weijun Wang (TONIGHT)
We’re thrilled to welcome author Esmé Weijun Wang, our Muse 2020 Fellow in Non-Fiction, to discuss her singular essay collection, The Collected Schizophrenias. This conversation will be as much about the process of writing and publishing The Collected Schizophrenias as about the content of the book itself. That said, we urge you to read The Collected Schizophrenias, which was lauded as "an intimate, moving book written with the immediacy and directness of one who still struggles with the effects of mental and chronic illness...Wang writes not just to her fellow members of the 'collected schizophrenias' but to those who wish to understand it as well." Wang will be in conversation with the fabulous Melody Moezzi, author of The Rumi Prescription.
Join Wang and Moezzi for an intimate discussion tonight at 7:30pm (EST) about the construction of The Collected Schizophrenias, the writing and publishing process, and more.
This event is free & open to the public. Pre-reading the collection is recommended, but not required.
