On this edition of Limited Engagement, Jared talks with writer and professor Venita Blackburn. Family, religion, politics, art, Star Trek--you know, the big stuff. Venita's first book, Black Jesus and Other Superheroes, is an outstanding collection of short fiction that explores the human condition. The book was nominated for the PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction. Did we mention it's her first book? Venita will be reading from and signing copies of Black Jesus and Other Superheroes this Thursday, March 22nd at 7 pm at the Tempe location of Changing Hands.
