Want to read a great book? Want to meet other students? Join us this semester to discuss the new novel Open Water (2021) by Caleb Azumah Nelson. It’s the story of two Black artists, a dancer and a photographer, who come of age and fall in love in contemporary London. The novel, Nelson’s first, made many “best of 2021” lists and has been called “an intense, elegant debut,” “a shattering love story,” and “an exploration of desire, love, trauma, race, and art.”
Our conversations will be led by Gabriel Mayora, assistant teaching professor in the English Department and the Center for Women's and Gender Studies, and Jason Pearl, associate professor in English. Simply purchase the book and come to our first meeting to discuss the first half on February 22 at 3:30pm in GC 289. Our second meeting, to discuss the second half, will be on March 22 at 3:30pm in GC 289. If you would like to attend via Zoom, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Hope to see you there!
