Morgan Jerkins signs and discusses “This Will Be My Undoing”

Left Bank Books welcomes author Morgan Jerkins, who will sign and discuss his new book, "This Will Be My Undoing: Living at the Intersection of Black, Female, and Feminist in (White) America"!

This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of "This Will Be My Undoing" from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.

From one of the fiercest critics writing today, Morgan Jerkins’ highly-anticipated collection of linked essays interweaves her incisive commentary on pop culture, feminism, black history, misogyny, and racism with her own experiences to confront the very real challenges of being a black woman today—perfect for fans of Roxane Gay’s "Bad Feminist." Whether she’s writing about Sailor Moon; Rachel Dolezal; the stigma of therapy; her complex relationship with her own physical body; the pain of dating when men say they don’t “see color”; being a black visitor in Russia; the paradox of black female sexuality; or disabled black women in the context of the “Black Girl Magic” movement, Jerkins is compelling and revelatory.
