Made Local with Brian Broome

Presented by Pittsburgh Arts & Lectures at Online/Virtual Space

May 18 2021
Made Local with Brian Broome

Join us for a virtual lecture with local author Brian Broome, in conversation with award-winning poet Yona Harvey.

A poetic and raw coming-of-age memoir about Blackness, masculinity, and addiction, Punch Me Up to the Gods introduces a powerful new talent in Brian Broome, whose early years growing up in Ohio as a dark-skinned Black boy harboring crushes on other boys propel forward this gorgeous, aching, and unforgettable debut. Brian’s recounting of his experiences—in all their cringe-worthy, hilarious, and heartbreaking glory—reveal a perpetual outsider awkwardly squirming to find his way in.
