"I’m not a person who tells someone how to read my book, that’s not my job” -- an afternoon with author Paul Beatty
This year's Writers and Readers series continued Saturday with a full day of programming at Cleveland Public Library's main branch. Attendees first gathered for an interactive poetry workshop led by Dr. Mary E. Weems titled "It's All About Race: Using Poetry to Resist Racism," before participating in a special craft Q&A with Man Booker Prize winning author Paul Beatty. Beatty, author of The Sellout, Slumberland, Tuff, and other novels, capped off the day by discussing his approach to the craft of writing alongside Oberlin professor Gillian Johns.
