LitLounge--Another Brooklyn: Online Event

Wednesday, June 10, 2020
7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

August is 35 the year she returns to Brooklyn to bury her father, and a chance encounter with a friend in her old neighborhood prompts a flood of memories from her youth.

Having moved to Brooklyn at age eight, August's coming of age was marked by a search for belonging, close friendships, freedom, and the little-understood absence of her mother. Her memories explore what it was like to be an African-American girl (and teen) in the 1970s, what possibilities existed--and what challenges (NoveList Plus).
