Fathering – Greg November

Greg November’s project for the 2021 Jack Straw Writers Program is a collection of short stories that explore fatherhood and masculinity. In his conversation with curator E.J. Koh, they discuss the conflicts and challenges of being a caregiver and a role model. “At times I feel like I’ve got to . . . be a leader . . . to model ways of carrying through, and being determined . . . But then also being soothers, being comforters, I mean – the kid’s only six years old and he hurt his knee.”

Music by Andrew Weathers, produced in part through the Jack Straw Artist Support Program.
