Speaker Series: Shannon Gibney

Uploaded by CMUDietrich
Writer Shannon Gibney will give a reading of her new novel, “Dream Country,” as part of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Writing Awards Fall Speaker Series at Carnegie Mellon University. A 1997 alumna of Carnegie Mellon, Gibney writes and speaks extensively about the intersection of race, gender, class, family, power and identity. “Publishers Weekly” described Gibney’s widely praised second novel, “Dream Country” as “a necessary reckoning of tensions within the African diaspora — an introduction to its brokenness and a place to start healing.”
