Ayana Mathis in Conversation With Angela Flournoy

“There’s nobody left here now. Cows. Graves. Me. There’s not but a thousand acres of Bonaparte left between us.” In this virtual City Lights LIVE event, Ayana Mathis reads from her new novel, The Unsettled (Knopf, 2023), and speaks about finding her compass again after the success of her debut book and the need for quiet and privacy to develop characters in a conversation with author Angela Flournoy.
