Summer is for reading (among other things), so it seems like a good time for another spate of book talks and signings.
Here’s the schedule so far:
–Sunday, June 16, 2-6 p.m., I’ll have a table at the William & Mary bookstore, 345 Duke of Gloucester St., Williamsburg, to sign copies of the new anthology Slavery’s Descendants: Shared Legacies of Race and Reconciliation. It contains stories from me and 24 other authors – descendants of enslavers and the enslaved – dealing with America’s racist history and its lingering legacy today.
–Saturday, June 22, 3-5 p.m., I’ll talk about and sign copies of Uncle George and Me: Two Southern Families Confront a Shared Legacy of Slavery at the Nottoway County Public Library, 414 Tyler St., Crewe, Va. It’s the story of my odyssey of discovery about my slave-owning ancestors, their slaves, and those slaves’ descendants. I’ll also have copies of Slavery’s Descendants.
–Saturday, June 29, 11 a.m.-2 p.m., I’ll sign copies of Uncle George and Me in a joint appearance with two other Virginia authors at the Book Bin, a book and coffee shop on Virginia’s Eastern Shore, 25304 Lankford Hwy., Onley, Va.
–Saturday, July 20, 1-5 p.m., I’ll sign Slavery’s Descendants at the New Town Barnes & Noble, 5101 Main St., Williamsburg.
