Agent of Change Honoree Kiley Reid Keynote Speaker at “Girls Write Now Live” via girlswritenow.org (6/5)
Girls Write Now Agent of Change Honoree Kiley Reid, author of SUCH A FUN AGE (Putnam), will give the keynote talk, followed by live readings from 25 teens, at the Girls Write Now Live “History in the Making” virtual event via girlswritenow.org on Friday, June 5, 6:00 – 8:00pm (ET).
SUCH A FUN AGE is a page-turning and big-hearted story about race and privilege, set around a young black babysitter, her well-intentioned employer, and a surprising connection that threatens to undo them both.
Reid earned her MFA from the Iowa Writers’ Workshop, where she was awarded the Truman Capote Fellowship and taught undergraduate creative writing workshops with a focus on race and class. Her short stories have been featured in Ploughshares, December, New South, and Lumina. Reid lives in Philadelphia.
