Gabriel Bump: The New Naturals


Writer Gabriel Bump, the Ernest J. Gaines Award-winning author of Everywhere You Don’t Belong, visits the American Writers Museum to read from and discuss his new book The New Naturals, a touching, timely novel—called a “tour de force” by Kaitlyn Greenidge (Libertie) and “wry and astonishing” by Publishers Weekly—about an attempt to found an underground Black utopia and the interwoven stories of those drawn to it. Bump is joined in conversation by author Adam Levin. Books will be available for purchase and Bump will sign them following the program.

This program is presented in conjunction with the AWM’s special exhibit Dark Testament: A Century of Black Writers on Justice, on display now. Your ticket to this program grants you full access to Dark Testament and all other AWM exhibits.

This is an in-person program at the American Writers Museum. This program will also be livestreamed, and you can register for free for the link to the online broadcast here. In-person discounts are available for students and educators!
