Kaitlyn Greenidge

"The Weight of History and the Search for Freedom"

Hailed by the New York Times as “a feat of monumental thematic imagination” and by Publisher’s Weekly as a “genius work of radical historical fiction,” Whiting-prize winner Kaitlyn Greenidge’s Libertie explores the questions of personal freedom, trauma, motherhood, and Black liberation through the story of Libertie Sampson, a Black girl in Reconstruction-era Brooklyn whose doctor mother expects her to follow in her trailblazing path. She will be in conversation with Fairfield’s MFA writing professor and author Phil Klay.
