Avan Jogia "Mixed Feelings"

Thursday, September 26, 2019
5:00pm – 6:30pm

Storrs Campus
UConn Barnes & Noble

Please join us at UConn Barnes & Noble in Downtown Storrs in welcoming Avan Jogia as he presents his new book MIXED FEELINGS.

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.

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.
