Wordfest: 26@26: Omar El Akkad & Ian Williams
September 21, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm PDT
Topical. Penetrating. At the forefront of the most anticipated books for fall are the latest from Omar El Akkad, whose second novel more than lives up to the high standards set by his first, and Ian Williams, whose first book of non-fiction proves that a poet’s perceptions on race make for required reading across genres.
The one-hour livestream event on Wordfest.com starts at 7:00 PM MT. (The pre-show begins at 6:50 PM.) The day after the show, we’ll email you our unique Digital Doggie Bag, featuring links and extras sparked by the conversation.
