Join author Carter Sickels as he discusses his novel, The Prettiest Star (one of O Magazine‘s “31 LGBTQ Books That’ll Change the Literary Landscape in 2020”), with Cassius Adair.

“Carter Sickels’ The Prettiest Star is the story of a young man who must drag his body from the mouth of death back to the ‘home’ that nearly killed him. The story of a queer desiring body moving through the crucibles of life toward song, toward rewriting family and whatever we mean by home, toward a kind of hope that comes from the dirt up and not the sky down. A heart triumph.”—Lidia Yuknavitch
