The Los Angeles Times Festival of Books continues this week with a free online conversation with former President Barack Obama and acclaimed filmmaker Ava DuVernay.
You can enjoy this lively literary chat between Obama and DuVernay on YouTube, Twitter, or Facebook Live this Wednesday, April 21, at 7 p.m.
Obama will discuss his latest book, “A Promised Land.” His first presidential memoir, “A Promised Land” focuses on Obama’s political awakening while attending Occidental College, continuing as he worked as a community organizer and senator in Chicago, followed by his grassroots campaign to become the first black U.S. President.
DuVernay is the award-winning director of “Selma,” “A Wrinkle in Time,” and the Netflix series “When They See Us.”
