April 23rd – L.A. Times Festival of Books 2022 – Janelle Monáe Ideas Exchange

Ideas Exchange presents Janelle Monáe, author of The Memory Librarian, in conversation with Erika D. Smith at Festival of Books at USC

From groundbreaking musician, actor, fashion icon and futurist JANELLE MONÁE and an outstanding group of collaborators comes THE MEMORY LIBRARIAN, a collection of short fiction, bringing to the written page the rebellious and Afrofuturistic world of Monáe’s critically acclaimed album Dirty Computer.

“In this moving, triumphant collection, singer Monáe returns to the dystopian world of her Dirty Computer concept album and short film. . Though a special treat for Dirty Computer fans, readers won’t need to be familiar with the album to marvel at the big ideas, riveting action, and hopeful message here. This is a knockout.” –Publishers Weekly, *starred review
