The Delta Memorial Endowment Fund Inc. 46th Annual Literary Luncheon

April 20, 2024
12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
333 West Kilbourn Avenue, Milwaukee
Event Description
Join us for the 46th Annual Literary Luncheon hosted by The Delta Memorial Endowment Fund Inc., where we celebrate literature!

Ayana Mathis’s stunning debut novel, The Twelve Tribes of Hattie, was hailed by critics as the arrival of an incandescent literary talent. The book tells the story of the Great Migration through the eyes of a woman who moves from the South to Philadelphia and her eleven children and one grandchild—her twelve tribes. Oprah Winfrey called it “astonishing” and selected it as the second book for the Oprah’s Book Club 2.0. A New York Times bestseller, Hattie was selected as a Best Book of the Year in 2013 by The New York Times, The Boston Globe, and NPR. It was nominated for a 2013 Hurston/Wright Legacy Award for Black literature. Her newest novel is The Unsettled, a searing multi-generational novel set in racially and politically turbulent Philadelphia about a mother fighting for her sanity and survival. Kirkus calls it an “affecting and carefully drawn story of a family on the brink” in their starred review. Mathis’s nonfiction has been published in The Atlantic, The New York Times, The Financial Times, The New Yorker, and Rolling Stone. She was also a contributor to the essay collection Double Bind: Women on Ambition, along with Roxane Gay, Francine Prose, and others. Mathis has been the recipient of fellowships from the New York Public Library’s Cullman Center, the Bogliasco Foundation, the Civitella Ranieri Foundation in Italy, and the American Academy in Berlin. She was the first Black woman to be a permanent member of the faculty at the Iowa Writers’ Workshop. Mathis currently teaches in the MFA Creative Writing Program at Hunter College, and is pursuing her Masters of Divinity at Union Theological Seminary.
