What's more, the authors will attend the meetings and address participants in a Q&A session about their work. Participating writers include David Samuel Levinson, Kathleen Kent, Emmy Pérez, Kendra Allen, Joe Lansdale, Fowzia Karimi and Wendy Barker.
The next meeting — a third discussion of Levinson's Tell Me How This Ends Well — takes place on May 27. Set in a near-future America, the novel follows a Jewish family as they navigate familial tensions and a rise in national anti-Semitism. This book is "as much about the times in which we live as it is timeless," according to Gemini Ink.
Anyone that wants to get a head start on next month's discussion can grab a copy of Kathleen Kent's The Burn, which will be on the docket starting on June 24.
The Big Texas Read meets every other Wednesday at 7 p.m. CST. A full schedule of events, list of author participants and registration for the Zoom meetings are available on the Gemini Ink and Writing Workshops Dallas websites.
