Gilman is pleased to welcome author Brendan Kiely to speak with students on Thursday, April 14, 2022, as part of the Juneteenth Speaker Series.
Brendan Kiely is The New York Times bestselling author of “All American Boys” (with Jason Reynolds), “Tradition,” “The Last True Love Story,” and “The Gospel of Winter.” His most recent book is “The Other Talk: Reckoning with Our White Privilege.”
His work has been published in more than a dozen languages and has received the Coretta Scott King Author Honor Award, the Walter Dean Meyers Award, and ALA’s Top Ten Best Fiction for Young Adults. A former high school teacher, he is now on the faculty of the Solstice MFA Program. He watches too much basketball and reads too many books at the same time, but most importantly, he lives for and loves his wife and son.
