First Wednesdays

Fiction Reading by Sara Jaffe

Digital Event
November 9, 2022: 7:00 pm

In Sara Jaffe’s short fiction, characters struggle to be perceived by the world as they perceive themselves—as a “good white person,” as an authentic artist, as a queer parent, as legibly gendered. Her stories posit the “problems” of living according to one’s politics and values in our messy contemporary age, without suggesting that these problems can be easily, or ever, solved.
