For a person who said she isn’t doing any more public events until my book comes out, I have a lot of my plate for September. The reason is that each one of these opportunities were just irresistable. So I will just have to be a busy little bee.
Here’s the line up. I hope you can make it to at least one event, maybe two!:
On this day, I’ll be participating in the inaugural Ringshout reading series along with Danielle Evans and TahNehsi Coates. You may know this, but I am crazy about Daneille! her new book, Before You Suffocate Your Own Fool Self has been picked by NY Magazine as one of the most exiciting fall releases.
This is the annual open house for the Frederick Douglass Creative Arts Center. Come on by and find out more about this terrific harlem institution. Maybe you’ll end up registering for a class.
This is PEN’s Quiz night as part of the Brooklyn Book Festival. Come and be on my team. (Can’t find a darn thing about it online, but it’s really happening. I’ll post more deets later.)
