Black Writers Read: Juneteenth, One Year Later
Saturday, June 19, 2021

On Friday, June 19, 2020, Valley Society hosted an over 3-hour virtual
event, convening 16 Black writers from across the country to share their work.
Seeing the need to sustain this platform, we launched the series, Black Writers Read.
Join us, one year later in celebration of Juneteenth, to hear from members of Valley Society and past Black Writers Read guests reflect on the year in Black culture, literary arts, and existence. Past guests joining us include young adult fiction author, Kaija Langley, and memorist and essayist, Shannon Luders-Manuel. Members of Valley Society will read excerpts from work written over the past year.
