In this webinar, recorded May 26 2020, debut novelist Gabriel Bump discusses his book, Everywhere You Don’t Belong, with Abby Palko. “A comically dark coming-of-age story about growing up on the South Side of Chicago, it’s also social commentary at its finest, woven seamlessly into the work… Bump’s meditation on belonging and not belonging, where or with whom, how love is a way home no matter where you are, is handled so beautifully that you don’t know he’s hypnotized you until he’s done.”—Tommy Orange, The New York Times Book Review
