Living as a Mixed-Race Person In a World Fixated on Racial Identity, a Poetry Book Talk and Signing
Avan Jogia is an actor, activist and writer. He is known for his roles in the Nickelodeon sitcom Victorious, the ABC Family drama Twisted, and more. He will discuss and sign Mixed Feelings: Poems and Stories ($16.99 Andrews McMeel Publishing), a raw and moving collection of poetry, stories, and art about living as a mixed-race person in a world increasingly fixated on racial identity. This is his first book.
In Mixed Feelings, Jogia explores his complicated emotions around race, identity, religion, and family through poetry and imagery. Drawing on his own life story as well as interviews he's conducted with friends and strangers, Mixed Feelings serves as a dialogue starter for difficult topics that now, more than ever, need to be discussed.
