Kimbilio makes its New York debut as an official 2015 Brooklyn Book Fest bookend event. Our host is novelist and Kimbilio advisory board member Victor LaValle, author of the recent, The Devil in Silver, which The Washington Post called “a fearless exploration of America’s heart of darkness… a dizzying high-wire act.” Kimbilio promises a memorable night of literary fun.
Featured presenters include Kimbilio fellows Dianca London Potts, Kim Foote, Miranda McLeod and Nicole Dennis-Benn, author of the forthcoming novel Here Comes the Sun (Norton/Liveright, summer ’16). The evening will end with readings by prize-winning writers Asali Solomon, author of Disgruntled, and Rachel Kaadzi Ghansah, contributing writer for The New York Times Magazine. A special thanks to MoCADA Brooklyn for hosting the event. Wine and cheese reception to follow.
DEETS: Saturday, September 19th at 8 pm; 80 Hanson Place, Brooklyn, NY 11217
