The Center for Fiction: LGBTQ Caribbean Pride: Nicole Dennis-Benn with Roxane Gay
Join us for the paperback launch event of Nicole Dennis-Benn’s character-driven novel Patsy, which explores gender, sexuality, Jamaican life, and diaspora. In pursuit of a life that has more opportunities than the one she came from, Patsy moves from Jamaica to New York City, leaving behind her daughter, Tru. Although hundreds of miles and years separate them, they both grapple with queerness, forgiveness, and abandonment. Critically acclaimed author Roxane Gay will interview Nicole Dennis-Benn.
Presented in collaboration with the Brooklyn Caribbean Literary Festival.
