In this session, two talented writers explore multiple facets of being a woman in the world, from the deadly serious to the sublimely silly. In her candid and witty essay collection, Womanish: A Grown Black Woman Speaks on Love and Life, Kim McLarin interrogates issues such as divorce, depression, parenting, the Obamas, and the sometimes fraught relationships between black and white women. In her poignant I Just Haven’t Met You Yet, Tracy Strauss details her own dating journey and offers advice to others on how to eliminate obstacles to success, especially the “inner love saboteur.” This wide-ranging conversation will be led by Zeninjor Enwemeka, business, tech, and culture reporter for WBUR. Sponsored by Emerson College.
