About the event

Join this virtual discussion between Bereket alum Leah Nicole Whitcomb and writer Shipra Agarwal as they discuss Leah's debut short  story collection, Apocalypse Still, writing within the Bereket community as well as the themes and inspiration behind her speculative fiction collection.

About Apocalypse Still 

What happens when the world is ending, but society wants to move on and ignore it? Apocalypse Still explores the fears, rage, and hopes of Black women and girls who must  address the defeating circumstances of their apocalyptic worlds. In  these ten earth-shattering scenarios, young Black women question how to  survive, what they believe, and who to trust.
