As part of the I Am America series presented by The Center for Fiction & WNYC, writers Terese Marie Mailhot and Angela Flournoy discuss how we reckon with the historical legacies that are handed down to us, and how they become part of our personal stories. In her bestselling memoir Heart Berries, Mailhot looks at growing up on Seabird Island Indian Reservation. Flournoy’s novel The Turner House, which was a finalist for the National Book Award, traces the story of generations of an African American family through their home on Detroit’s East Side.Buy tickets/get more info now
