AuthorsLive: Admissions with Kendra James
September 14 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
AuthorsLive welcomes Kendra James to discuss her 2022 release, Admissions: A Memoir of Surviving Boarding School. Kendra James’ memoir is written in an accessible, funny way and sheds light on boarding schools and their challenges with race and equity. In Admissions, Kendra looks back at the three years she spent at Taft, from clashes with her lily-white roommate to unlearning the respectability politics she’d been raised with, and a horrifying article in the student newspaper that accused Black and Latinx students of being responsible for the segregation of campus.
