June 10 reading in NYC


On June 10 I will be giving one of my rather rare readings. I will introduce and read a selection from African Lives, my most recent book, and will offer a sneak preview of Thoreau’s Wildflowers, coming next spring from Yale University Press.

I am pleased to be sharing the stage with Julia Barclay-Morton. Refreshments will be available between our readings. The reading will take place in Bruce’s Garden next to Isham Park in the Inwood neighborhood of Manhattan. (Take the A train all the way to 207th Street, or the 1 train to 215 Street.) Books will be available for purchase.

Here are the details:
