Special Author Chat with Jordan Lopez

April 9 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Join us as we chat with Bristol’s own Jordan Lopez about his exciting first novel, Looked Down Upon: The Exiled Kin (released in August of 2023), his influences, and his career as a young writer who didn’t let a childhood with autism interfere with achieving his goals!

More information about Jordan Lopez and his work: https://jordanalopez.com/

Jordan Lopez is a poet and an aspiring author. Born and raised in Connecticut, as an autistic child he was misunderstood by many of my peers and teachers but that never stopped him from chasing his goals. Growing up, reading and writing weren’t great influences or interests, but while in college one of his essays was published in the college magazine. From there on his passion for writing was ignited and couldn’t be put out. He began writing poems and short shorties. In 2019, he began to write his first novel. He is an advocate for people with disabilities and a Special Olympics athlete.
