MIT Reads- A Conversation with Elizabeth Acevedo
Join Elizabeth Acevedo, the author of this semester’s MIT Reads selection, in dialog with an MIT student moderator.

About this event

Two girls, unknown to each other and separated by distance and family secrets, discover one another through a shared tragedy.  In Clap When You Land, a novel-in-verse that brims with grief and love, National Book Award-winning and New York Times-bestselling author Elizabeth Acevedo writes about the devastation of loss, the difficulty of forgiveness, and the bittersweet bonds that shape our lives.

This event is free and open to all, but you must pre-register.

  • If you choose to join us in person, please note that MIT CovidPass or Tim Tickets are required, and all participants must follow all MIT COVID safety protocols.
  • For virtual registrants: URL will be emailed closer to the event.

Small group discussions: In-person audience members are invited to stay for a post-event talkback session (no separate registration required.) Or sign up here for a virtual small group discussion on April 26, 5-6pm.

Your participation makes this program better.  Please email [email protected] if you require an accommodation in order to join us.

Please note:

The Valley of Writers team scours the web looking for the most inspiring, elevating, and accessible events that we can share as a service to our readers.
The big idea is that in a virtual arena, more people can participate. Geographical boundaries matter less.
The events we list are virtual and can be attended by writers from wherever they are in the world.
Unless otherwise stated, we are not affiliated with and do not benefit financially from the events we post. Listing is not an endorsement of the content, opinions, or products promoted by the event organizers we feature here.
Please verify all dates, times and other event details as these are subject to change and are beyond our control.

What qualifies an event as ‘lit’? Any event that we think would teach writers of fiction, memoir, and poetry useful skills, inspire them to produce great work, remind them of the power of this work we do and build stronger, mutually beneficial ties between writers and other creatives.
