Our Next Event


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.
