My book talk

On December 1st, 2021, Helena Andrews and I spoke about the book at Busboys and Poets. We had a surprising, satisfying conversation that felt like a true dialogue, and I was thrilled by it. Helena read the book very closely and she pulled at many threads that go beyond what you can find in my book. I was able to talk about why I used oral history, what the conversations were like for me, how people of different races experience belonging in the neighborhood and much more.

You can check out the conversation here, and the transcript is coming soon.

The Book

Last week, I signed a contract with Arcadia Publishing and The History Press to publish my oral history! I’m so thrilled that they are taking a chance on me and this project.

The book will be out in late 2021.
