Description


Zee JLF Boulder Book Club Meet-up: 6-7:30pm, Thursday, August 30

Meet With Author Marcia Douglas: The Marvellous Equations of the Dread: A Novel in Bass Riddim

This JLF Boulder Book Club Meet-up will precede the Boulder Bookstore booksigning with Marcia Thursday, August 30. The JLFB Book Club will meet with Marcia from 6-7:30pm prior to the Bookstore booksigning .

Read the August JLF@Boulder Book Club selection, The Marvellous Equations of the Dread: A Novel in Bass Riddim, then join us for live discussion and Q&A with the author!

Bob Marley is dead. The Emperor Haile Selassie has been brutally murdered.

The armed gangs of Kingston are at war and the murder rate soars. The people have lost all trust in self-serving politicians. It is hard to imagine worse times. The Marvellous Equations of the Dread tells the twin stories of Jamaica's nihilistic violence and its wondrously creative humanity and does truthful justice to both. It takes place in the worlds of the living and in the vivid afterlife of the dead, spanning the Kingston ghettoes, the Emperor's palace in Addis Ababa, and Zion.
