Come hear the work of these nonfiction forces: Sheila Kohler, Rajpreet Heir, and Shawn Wen. Kohler’s memoir Once We Were Sisters grapples with heartbreaking loss and the enduring bonds of sisterhood in her homeland of South Africa. Heir’s essays on race in America have been published in The Atlantic, the New York Times and The Washington Post. Karan Mahajan called her work “dirty, hilarious, and utterly original.” And In a Twenty Minute Silence Followed by Applause, Wen depicts the career of French mime Marcel Marceau, uncovering the unknown about the master of this lost artform.
