Tuesday, February 7, 2023

7:00 PM

Gramercy Books

2424 E. Main Street

Bexley, Ohio 43209

 

Jamila Minnicks, recipient of the 2021 PEN/Bellwether Prize for Socially Engaged Fiction, will be in conversation with noted Ohio State University civil rights scholar, Dr. Hasan Jeffries to discuss Minnicks’s debut novel,  Moonrise Over New Jessup,  a thought-provoking and enchanting debut about a Black woman doing whatever it takes to protect all she loves at the beginning of the civil rights movement in Alabama. Minnicks’s novel is both a celebration of Black joy and a timely examination of the opposing viewpoints that attended desegregation in America.

Registration is on Eventbrite, closing at 6:00 pm on the day of the event. The purchase of Moonrise Over New Jessup waives the $5 admission fee.


KING ARTS COMPLEX and OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY DEPARTMENT OF HISTORY are Gramercy’s Community Partners for this program.
