There is no single American narrative, there are millions of personal stories across the country: gay, straight, white, black, Asian, Latino, Native American,rural, urban, immigrant, religious, secular, living with disability, able-bodied (and more!) Join librarian Thérèse Purcell Nielsen in a year-long project of examining our American Stories as recorded in memoirs and autobiographies.
January’s memoir is Heavy by Kiese Laymon. Heavy received a starred review from Kirkus, which described the books as “A challenging memoir about black-white relations, income inequality, mother-son dynamics, Mississippi byways, lack of personal self-control, education from kindergarten through graduate school, and so much more.”
