What We Lose by Zinzi Clemmons

Share this page:
Join us for a conversation about What We Lose, a stunning novel about a young African-American woman coming of age — a deeply felt meditation on race, sex, family and country, from an author of rare, haunting power. Zinzi Clemmons will be in conversation with Caille Milner.

The conversation will be followed by a book signing.

Zinzi Clemmons was raised in Philadelphia by a South African mother and an American father. Co-founder of the literary journal Apogee, she currently serves as Associate Editor at the Believer and as Contributing Editor to Literary Hub. Her debut novel, What We Lose (Viking 2017) was a finalist for the Carnegie Medal, the Aspen Words Literary Prize, and the National Book Critics Circle Leonard Prize. She is a 2017 National Book Award 5 Under 35 Honoree.
