Kaitlyn Greenidge

This week’s episode features Kaitlyn Greenidge being interviewed by Brooke as part of the San Diego Writers Festival. Her recent novel, Libertie, is a tour de force and examination of Reconstruction-era America through the story of Libertie, born black and free during a time when America’s attempts to right the wrongs of slavery were being met with great promise and great resistance. How storytelling informs and educates shines through in this conversation, and we thank the San Diego Writers Festival for this collaboration.


Kaitlyn Greenidge is the author of two novels, We Love You, Charlie Freeman and Libertie. Her writing has appeared in Vogue, Glamour, the Wall Street Journal, Elle, Buzzfeed, and other places. She is the recipient of multiple fellowships. She is currently Features Director at Harper’s Bazaar as well as a contributing writer for The New York Times.
