Writing White Fragility: An Editorial Discussion (Video)



Brandon Taylor, author of Booker Prize finalist Real Life and senior editor of Recommended Reading, talks to Ross Feeler about “Parisian Honeymoon,” a story about a man who discovers that his new wife is a bigot. They discuss their editing process, and how to write anti-racist stories with racist characters without being morally didactic. Their conversation is followed by an audience Q&A. This event took place on Tuesday, October 20, 2020 as part of Electric Lit’s first Virtual Salon Series and was presented by Penguin Random House.
