Event description

Description

Co-authors of the award-winning All American Boys will read from and discuss their novel about police brutality, racial tension and the power of social media, as seen from the eyes of two teens—one black and one white. Brendan Kiely is also the author of The Last True Love Story and The Gospel of Winter, named one of the Top Ten Best Fiction for Young Adults in 2015. Jason Reynolds has vowed never to write boring books and has kept his word with When I Was the Greatest (recipient of Coretta Scott King/John Steptoe Award for New Talent), As Brave As You, The Boy in the Black Suit (Coretta Scott King Honor book) and Ghost, finalist for the National Book Award. This event will include a book giveaway while supplies last. Registration recommended. Sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture.
