In celebration of the release of her new memoir, Not For Everyday Use, Elizabeth Nunez is the subject of our monthly Akashic Digits: Digital Excerpts from the Akashic Catalog program. Our Elizabeth Nunez Digit features excerpts from Not for Everyday Use and her two novels, Anna In-Between and Boundaries.
To celebrate the release of Elizabeth Nunez’s memoir, Not for Everyday Use, Johnny Temple spoke with Elizabeth Nunez (author of eight novels, including Boundaries and Anna In-Between) and Tayari Jones (author of Silver Sparrow, The Untelling, and Leaving Atlanta) about teaching, writing, family, memory, and more.
This February, in celebration of Black History Month and in conjunction with the long-awaited paperback reissue of Nowhere Is a Place, Bernice L. McFadden inaugurated our feature with the wonderful conclusion to her book. Since then, Courttia Newland and Kwame Dawes have contributed stories of their own family history. This week, Elizabeth Nunez similarly asks, Are We Related?
