    For the Culture: An Unvarnished Conversation with Jia Tolentino & Shea Serrano

    Shea Serrano
    Staff Writer, The Ringer
    Jia Tolentino
    Staff Writer, The New Yorker

    Hailed by some as the “voice of her generation,” Jia Tolentino is a staff writer for the New Yorker whose work has been celebrated for its incisive critique and piercing wit about the vicissitudes of American culture—something people crave now more than ever. 

    Shea Serrano is a best-selling author whose writings on basketball, pop culture, movies, and race zoom from high to low, with provocative ideas about race and class next to thoughts on The Best Gangster Movie Moments.

    In the midst of these rapidly changing and uncertain times, we’re bringing together these two forces for a no-holds-barred conversation about Twitter, the writing process, and the reality of living a life online during the age of COVID-19.
