CityLit Stage – Pier 5 Hotel, Chesapeake Room
711 Eastern Avenue, Baltimore, MD, USA
Jaquira Díaz’s highly anticipated, electrifying debut work, Ordinary Girl, shares her unflinching memoir that gives voice to black and brown girls, queer and poor, who never saw themselves in books; where love triumphs a life as a repeat offender; and the struggles of a mother battling mental illness and addiction – a white woman who didn’t know how to protect her brown children become real talk for a real life, with Gabrielle Lucille Fuentes, author of The Sleeping World interviewing.
