PEN Literary Awards winner Rion Amilcar Scott returns to New York City to launch his sophomore short story collection The World Doesn’t Require You. This highly anticipated collection highlights Scott’s blazing prose as he takes on race, history, and genre, further establishing him as an essential voice in the contemporary literary canon. Scott will read from the book and discuss his creative process and inspirations with cultural critic Vinson Cunningham, New Yorker staff writer and Director of Programming for Jack Jones Literary Arts’ inaugural Culture, Too conference. Presented in collaboration with the Creative Writing Program at the New School.
