Disgust: A Memoir is funny, tender, and rigorous in its exploration of how the most difficult emotion functions both in our private lives and our collective imaginations.
Stephanie Grant is the author of the novels The Passion of Alice and Map of Ireland. She writes about female embodiment, which is another way of saying she writes about women’s and girls’ bodies, including their sexuality, genders, and race, and how their bodies are frequently the site where struggles personal and political, existential and social get expressed in American culture.
Grant will be in conversation with Jacqueline Woodson, the recipient of a 2020 MacArthur Fellowship, the 2020 Hans Christian Andersen Award, the 2018 Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award, and the 2018 Children’s Literature Legacy Award, and she was the 2018–2019 National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature. Her New York Times bestselling memoir, Brown Girl Dreaming, won the National Book Award, as well as the Coretta Scott King Award, a Newbery Honor, and the NAACP Image Award. She's also written two adult novels along with dozens of children's books during her career.
