James McBride, author, musician, and screenwriter, visits to discuss Deacon King Kong, his first novel since winning the National Book Award.

In September 1969, a cranky old church deacon shoots a drug dealer in the courtyard of a south Brooklyn housing project. The causes and aftermath of the shooting unfold in Deacon King Kong, told with insight and wit, and ultimately demonstrating that love and faith live in all of us.

McBride is the author of Miracle at St. AnnaSong Yet Sung, the Anisfield-Wolf-winning memoir The Color of Water, and National Book Award-winning The Good Lord Bird.  He is an alum of Oberlin College, and he is currently a Distinguished Writer in Residence at New York University.


Each ticket includes a seat at the author's talk, a copy of Deacon King Kong, and a donation to the Cuyahoga County Public Library Foundation.

Additional books will be available for purchase and signing courtesy of Mac’s Backs – Books on Coventry.
