Keenan Norris reads from his new book, The Confession of Copeland Cane, described by Wendy Jean Fox, BuzzFeed Books, as “A significant new voice in fiction, Norris has written what may be one of the defining novels of the era at the intersection between Black Lives Matter and COVID-19” and by Michael Datcher as a “potent cocktail of lyrical dexterity, societal critique, and fascinating characters [The Confession of Copeland Cane] brings to mind Ishmael Reed’s classic ‘Mumbo Jumbo.’" After the reading, Norris will discuss the book, with an audience Q&A to follow.


This will be a hybrid event, join us live in-person or via Zoom (registration required).
