Get Lit with All Of It: Brit Bennett

Get Lit with All Of It

Originally Aired: Thursday, October 22, 2020

Available for viewing


Watch a live video stream as Alison Stewart, host of WNYC’s All of It, continues her virtual book club series with acclaimed author Brit Bennett. They’ll discuss her novel, The Vanishing Half, a New York Times best-seller about identical twin sisters growing up in a southern Black community and their lives decades later after fate has pulled them apart. Allyson Hobbs, writer and Director of African and African American Studies at Stanford University, joins Bennett and Stewart to illuminate some of the issues that the novel touches on. Viewers are encouraged to submit their questions for the author on Twitter and Instagram.

Plus, Alison will be joined by Aloe Blacc for an exclusive musical performance.

Once again, All Of It teams up for this event with the New York Public Library so that New Yorkers can access the book for free through the NYPL app.
