TUESDAY, August 11, 2015 - Join me to celebrate the launch of my debut novel BRIGHT LINES at the wonderful Greenlight Bookstore in Fort Greene. The events of the novel take place minutes away from the bookstore, only a decade earlier.

What's even more special:  I'll be in conversation with Kiese Laymon, author of LONG DIVISION and HOW TO SLOWLY KILL YOURSELF IN AMERICA. He's one of the most profound and critical artists and teachers of our time.

Join us as we explore the themes of race, place, desire and deception in BRIGHT LINES.
