Here For It
Wednesday, Mar 11, 6:15 PM
Loyola University Maryland - Knott Hall
4501 North Charles Street
Baltimore, MD 21210
Author, playwright, and host of The Moth, R. Eric Thomas will talk about his upcoming debut memoir-in-essays, entitled Here For It, or How to Save Your Soul in America
published by Ballantine Books in February 2020. In essays by turns hysterical and heartfelt, Eric redefines what it means to be an “other” through the lens of his own life experience. He explores the two worlds of his childhood: the barren urban landscape where his parents’ house was an anomalous bright spot, and the verdant school they sent him to in white suburbia.
Hosted by Messina, Spectrum, and the LGBTQ+ Experience at Loyola University Maryland.
