T Kira Madden, M.F.A., essayist and the author of “Long Live The Tribe of Fatherless Girls: A Memoir,” presents a virtual reading of her work, which The New York Times calls “a fearless debut.” Madden’s memoir is a coming-of-age story exploring her identity as a queer, biracial teenager living in an environment of “cult-like privilege, shocking racial disparities, rampant white-collar crime, and powerfully destructive standards of beauty hiding in plain sight.”

Her reading is part of the Poets and Writers Reading Series offered by the Ohio Wesleyan Department of English. To register for the free event and receive the presentation link, send an email to eng@owu.edu. Learn more at www.owu.edu/english.
