As her family gathers to celebrate Melody’s coming-of-age ceremony, even the killer soundtrack (Prince!) can’t stop memories from sneaking in. As they each reflect on the winding paths that brought them here, Red at the Bone moves through time to reveal the fears, hopes, and desires hiding in every heart.

“What we have here is an exquisitely wrought tale of two urban black families…It reads like poetry and drama, a cry from the heart that often cuts close to the bone.” —NPR

Heads up: Red at the Bone is a tender novel that deals with some heavy themes — sexual desire, gentrification, class, parenthood and birth — and touches on cancer and death.

Check it out at Seattle Public Library. Please consider buying your Bushwick choices with their local bookstore partner, Third Place Books.

Presented by Town Hall Seattle and The Bushwick Book Club Seattle.
