September 29, 2019, 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
The Jamaican-American author discusses her acclaimed new novel, “Patsy,” at the latest event in the quarterly Book Brunch series. Hailed by reviewers as a brave and brilliant second novel, “Patsy” touches on themes of motherhood, migration and race in telling the story of a working class Jamaican woman whose dreams of moving to New York to be reunited with a childhood friend don’t match reality. Dennis-Benn is the author of the award-winning debut, “Here Comes the Sun,” a New York Times Notable Book of 2016.
Doors will open at 11 a.m. for coffee, tea and pastries with the reading set to begin at 11:30 a.m. Book signing to follow.
