Bios & Bookmarks: Marlon Peterson

Bios & Bookmarks: Marlon Peterson

A weekly session featuring readings by, and conversations with, popular authors.

Our penultimate episode of Bios & Bookmarks Season 7 takes us into the intense personal journey of Marlon Peterson’s Bird Uncaged: An Abolitionist’s Freedom Song (Bold Type Books). Kiese Laymon praises this debut as “a stunning memoir that pulls off everything it attempts … it made me want to ask more of myself as a writer, human, and abolitionist.” From detailing the survival of incarceration to seeking redefinitions of radical reform, Bird Uncaged is an indispensable read for our times.

This season of our signature online live interview series is named for the anthemic 1964 Sam Cooke classic, and focuses on social justice in our region and beyond; how can we work to build a better world?
