Event description

Description

This program will NOT be held at the Central Library and instead will be located at the Museum of African American Art in the 3rd floor Macy's Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza.

Marlon James
Black Leopard, Red Wolf
In conversation with Roxane Gay


Dubbed an “African Games of Thrones,” Marlon James’s transfixing new epic, Black Leopard, Red Wolf, defies all categorizations. From the Man Booker Prize-winning author of A Brief History of Seven Killings, this first novel of a forthcoming trilogy follows a mercenary’s journey to find a missing child in a magical ancient African continent. Blending myth, history, metaphysics, and psychology, James transforms the tradition of fantasy genre with a multicultural perspective to profoundly question the very nature of truth and power. Discussing the infinite possibilities of provocative storytelling, James will be joined in conversation by Roxane Gay, the trailblazing bestselling author of Bad Feminist, Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body, and World of Wakanda for Marvel.

Please note: books will be available for purchase at the event. A book signing will follow the event.

Co-presented with Eso Won Books
