Share this story with your world:

One World Ideas x Action presents Gabriella Burnham, author IT IS WOOD, IT IS STONE (One World) and Kali Fajardo-Anstine, author of SABRINA & CORINA (One World) — two writers that unearthed family secrets and histories while writing their works of fiction — in conversation with One World Senior Editor Nicole Counts via Zoom on Thursday, September 10 at 8:00 pm (ET).

The discussion will be about women, power structures, and how art can become a gateway to preternatural discovery—a way to heal, to explore, to confront and reconcile the facts and feelings that exist at the periphery of our everyday lives.

One World is partnering with MayDay Space for this event. Mayday is a community center and organizing hub for grassroots groups, Bushwick residents, artists, and activists from across NYC (and beyond!) to build a better world together. As an organizing center and events space for grassroots organizations to host their fundraiser parties, leadership retreats, and more, Mayday inspires and sustains a justice-oriented community that is both publicly identifiable and approachable.

A dual citizen of the United States and Brazil, Gabriella Burnham has been awarded fellowships to MacDowell Colony and Yaddo. She has worked as a reporter, a creative writing teacher, and in immigration law. It Is Wood, It Is Stone is her first novel. Kali Fajardo-Anstine is a National Book Award Finalist and the author of Sabrina & Corina, a finalist for the PEN/Bingham Prize and The Story Prize, and was the 2019 recipient of the Denver Mayor’s Award for Global Impact in the Arts. Kali has been awarded fellowships from Yaddo, MacDowell Colony, Tin House, and Hedgebrook.
