Ms. Walker will be in conversation with Beverly Guy-Sheftall on this evening and they will be hosted by KPFA’s Sabrina Jacobs.
From National Book Award and Pulitzer Prize–winning author Alice Walker and edited by critic and writer Valerie Boyd, comes an unprecedented compilation of Walker’s fifty years of journals drawing an intimate portrait of her development over five decades as an artist, human rights and women’s activist, and intellectual.
“Over three decades of journal entries from Pulitzer Prize-winner Alice Walker come together in this impressive compendium… Walker’s fans are in for a treat.” Publishers Weekly
“The well-populated volume features many of Walker’s notable friends, including Gloria Steinem and Angela Davis, and lovers who brought delight and, sometimes, despair. An intimate glimpse into an important writer’s life.” Kirkus Reviews
