In Conversation: On The Very Nice Box: A Novel & The Other Black Girl: A Novel
Saturday, November 20 @ 1:00 pm
300 NE Second Ave., Miami, FL 33132 United States
The Very Nice Box: A Novel, from co-authors Laura Blackett and Eve Gleichman, is an offbeat, wryly funny debut that blends workplace satire and mystery around a core theme of triumph after tragedy. As it follows the troubled relationship between the only two Black women working in a major publishing house, Zakiya Dalila Harris’ The Other Black Girl becomes both a smart, dynamic thriller and a sly social commentary. Moderated by Dr. Donna Aza Weir-Soley, associate professor of English at Florida International University, writer and scholar in the areas of African and African diaspora studies, Caribbean literature, and women’s studies.
