DMA Arts & Letters Live presents Christine Pride and Jo Piazza, who will be in conversation with Melissa Harrison about their new novel, We Are Not Like Them.

Told from alternating perspectives, co-authors Pride and Piazza deliver an evocative and riveting novel about the lifelong bond between two women, one Black and one white, whose friendship is indelibly altered by a tragic event. It is a powerful and poignant exploration of race in America today and its devastating impact on ordinary lives.

Jen and Riley have remained best friends since kindergarten, though their lives have taken different directions. Jen married young and is finally pregnant, while Riley pursued her childhood dream of becoming a television journalist. But the deep bond they share is severely tested when Jen’s husband, a city police officer, is involved in the shooting of an unarmed Black teenager. We Are Not Like Them explores complex questions of race and how they pervade and shape our most intimate spaces in a deeply divided world. But at its heart, it’s a story of enduring friendship—a love that defies the odds even as it faces its most difficult challenges.
