In today’s episode, author Patrice Gopo reads from and discusses her book “All the Colors We Will See: Reflections on Barriers, Brokenness, and Finding Our Way,” a Barnes & Noble Fall 2018 Discover Great New Writers selection.

Drawing on her experience as the child of Jamaican immigrants, born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska, Patrice enjoys exploring issues of race, immigration, and belonging. She believes that the personal essay is an effective method for uncovering deeper thoughts, causes, and concerns that lie beneath your lived experience.

In this show, we highlight essays that speak to family history, black role models, degrees of blackness and more and we explore the writing of personal essay. We start with Patrice reading an excerpt from her essay, “What Remains.”
