Poet, memoirist, and novelist Jon Pineda presents his new book Let’s No One Get Hurt, with a night of readings and conversation. With the cinematic and terrifying beauty of the American South humming behind each line, Let’s No One Get Hurt is a coming-of-age story set equally between real-world issues of race and socioeconomics, and a magical, Huck Finn-esque universe of community and exploration. Deep in the swamps of the American South, a fifteen-year old squats in an abandoned boathouse with her father, a disgraced college professor, living on the fringe, scavenging what she can. When she meets the leader of a pack of errant, privileged boys, things take a devastating turn. Pineda presents his new Southern Gothic novel with an evening of readings and conversation with Kundiman fellows and authors to be announced. A signing and Q&A follows the presentation.
