Sameer Pandya is the author of the story collection The Blind Writer, which was long listed for the PEN/Open Book Award. He is also the recipient of the PEN/Civitella Fellowship. Members Only is his first novel. It explores what membership and belonging mean while navigating the complicated space between black and white America.


Kiley Reid is a recent graduate of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop where she was the recipient of the Truman Capote Fellowship. Her first novel is Such a Fun Age. It is a story about race and privilege, set around a young black babysitter, her well-intentioned employer, and a surprising connection that threatens to undo them both.

Pandya and Reid will appear in conversation with Atlanta’s own Joshilyn Jackson. Jackson is the New York Times bestselling author of The Almost Sisters, Never Have I Ever, and many others.


Presented by Gwinnett County Public Library, Decatur Book Festival, and Georgia Center for the Book, this talk is free and open to the public.  Join us on Tuesday, July 28 at 7:00 pm by visiting our website www.gwinnettpl.org and finding the link in our calendar listing.
