Event: Black-Asian Solidarity Book Fair
This Saturday April 29th, I am thrilled to be taking part in a Black-Asian solidarity book fair in New York City through the organisation @blasianmarch.
The book fair will take place from 1-5 PM at Immigrant Social Services, 137 Henry Street in Chinatown, and will end with a Writing In Solidarity panel at 4-5pm featuring myself and Daphne Palasi Andreades, author of Brown Girls.
The fair will be giving away free books by Black/African Diaspora/SWANA and Asian Diaspora/SWANA authors to promote solidarity through sharing stories to foster understanding between communities.
Daphne Palasi Andreades is the author of the debut novel, BROWN GIRLS, which published in 2022 with Random House. BROWN GIRLS was selected as a New York Times Editors’ Choice, a finalist for the Center for Fiction First Novel Prize, and has been taught to high school, undergraduate, and graduate-level students. Internationally, BROWN GIRLS has published in the UK and Commonwealth, France, and Germany. Daphne is a proud graduate of New York City public schools and went on to earn her MFA in Fiction at Columbia University. Born and raised in Queens, New York, Daphne is now at work on her second novel.
