Tomorrow I'll be reading from my novel, Picking Bones from Ash, with the novelist Marlon James and photographer Stephanie Keith in an event titled "Powerful Women" and organized by Maud Newton.
Housing Works Bookstore Cafe
126 Crosby Street
New York, New York 10012
Exploring unusual manifestations of female power: Novelist Marlon James reads briefly from his acclaimed (and magnificent) novel, The Book of Night Women, alongside fellow writer Marie Mockett (of the excellent forthcoming novel Picking Bones from Ash). Photo-documentarian Stephanie Keith will present a slideshow featuring a Voodoo high priestess she's been following.
We'll have trivia and prizes, and the readings and presentation will get started at 7:30 and finish up by 8:30, if not before. Arrive early if you can. It gets crowded!
