You may know Shayla Lawson from her book I Think I'm Ready to See Frank Ocean, which takes individual Frank Ocean songs as inspiration to produce "a mythological mixtape of confession and surreal sleuthing," as poet Phillip B. Williams has described it. Join her for a conversation on her new book of essays, This is Major: Notes on Diana Ross, Dark Girls and Being Dope. She'll be joined by OPB's Tiffany Camhi as part of the Portland Book Festival.
