Happy to report that the group my wife Bridgett co-founded, ringShout, is starting a reading series. You may recall that ringShout is a group of writers and editors whose mission is to support Black literary fiction and create opportunities for audiences, particularly African American ones, to discover more complex literary works.
This event will be part of the Brooklyn Book Festival and takes place next Friday, September 10 at Littlefield. The writers who’ll read are (above, l to r):

All the details:
