James McBride

Tuesday, March 24, 7:30 p.m.

In partnership with The Black Academy of Arts and Letters

In September 1969, a church deacon shuffles into the courtyard of a housing project in south Brooklyn, pulls a .45 from his pocket, and in front of everybody shoots the project’s drug dealer. The reasons for this desperate burst of violence and the consequences that spring from it lie at the heart of Deacon King Kong, the first novel from James McBride since his National Book Award–winning The Good Lord Bird. As the story deepens, it becomes clear that the lives of the characters affected by the shooting—caught in the tumultuous swirl of 1960s New York—overlap in unexpected ways.
