PUTNEY—The Spring 2021 Landmark College Academic Speaker Series opens with a free online talk by author Sejal Shah on Tuesday, Feb. 23 at 7 p.m.
Shah will read from her 2020 memoir This Is One Way to Dance (University of Georgia Press) and share her experience “moving through place and time, reflecting on identity, race, and the challenges of finding voice as a woman of color in America,” according to publicity from the college.
She also brings the perspective of neurodiversity to her experiences and will touch on the relationship between mental health and academia.
Shah’s stories and essays have appeared widely in print and online — including Brevity, Guernica, Conjunctions, The Kenyon Review, and Longreads. She has presented her work on invisible disability and neurodiversity as an invited keynote speaker at conferences at Princeton University and the University of North Carolina.
