Our Next Event

02/21/2020

Join Porter Square Books to welcome our 2020 Writers in Residence Justin Chen and Sacha Lamb as they read selections from their works in progress!

Justin Chen’s project is a memoir that explores how he came to writing after spending a number of years as a molecular biologist. He tells this second-coming-of-age story alongside the stories of two long-term relationships that ended in this same time period. Justin’s prose was sharp and compelling and we were especially taken by how he uses the story of becoming a writer in a very different way than we’ve seen before, using it to explore different issues of identity, family, relationships, and the value and experience of different types of work.
