Made Local with Brian Broome, Presented by Pittsburgh Arts & Lectures

Uploaded by pghlectures
Join us for a virtual lecture with local author Brian Broome, in conversation with award-winning poet Yona Harvey. A poetic and raw coming-of-age memoir about Blackness, masculinity, and addiction, Punch Me Up to the Gods introduces a powerful new talent in Brian Broome, whose early years growing up in Ohio as a dark-skinned Black boy harboring crushes on other boys propel forward this gorgeous, aching, and unforgettable debut. Broome’s writing brims with swagger and sensitivity, bringing an exquisite and fresh voice to ongoing cultural conversations about Blackness in America.
