Savala Nolan in Conversation with Nadia Owusu
- July 20, 2021
The author of Don't Let It Get You Down: Essays on Race, Gender, and the Body speaks virtually on Thurs., July 22nd, at 8 p.m. (EDT)!
A powerful and provocative collection of essays that offers poignant reflections on living between society’s most charged, politicized, and intractably polar spaces — between Black and white, rich and poor, thin and fat.
Savala Nolan is a writer, speaker, and lawyer. She is executive director of the Thelton E. Henderson Center for Social Justice at the University of California, Berkeley, School of Law. She and her writing have been featured in Vogue, Time, NPR, Forbes, Huffington Post, Health, Shape, and more. She lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her family.
Nolan will be joined in conversation with Nadia Owusu, a Brooklyn-based writer and urban planner. She is the recipient of a 2019 Whiting Award. Her lyric essay "So Devilish a Fire" won the Atlas Review chapbook contest. Her writing has appeared or is forthcoming in the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Granta, the Guardian, Bon Appétit, Electric Literature, the Paris Review Daily, and Catapult. Aftershocks is her first book.
