Join Elizabeth Acevedo, the author of this semester's MIT Reads selection, in dialog with an MIT student moderator.
About this event:
Two girls, unknown to each other and separated by distance and family secrets, discover one another through a shared tragedy. In Clap When You Land, a novel-in-verse that brims with grief and love, National Book Award-winning and New York Times-bestselling author Elizabeth Acevedo writes about the devastation of loss, the difficulty of forgiveness, and the bittersweet bonds that shape our lives.
This event is free and open to all, but you must pre-register.
If you choose to join us in person, please note that MIT CovidPass or Tim Tickets are required, and all participants must follow all MIT COVID safety protocols.
