Girls Burn Brighter: “… a painful and riveting novel … with so much fire and grace it should speak to readers all over the world.” —Anita Felicelli, San Francisco Chronicle review.
The Beautiful No “… a roadmap for transformation — an honest, funny, and soulful look at what it really means to take stewardship over your own existence.” — Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love
The Old Drift: “A dazzling debut, establishing Namwali Serpell as a writer on the world stage.”—Salman Rushdie, The New York Times Book Review
White Devil’s Daughters “…an inspiring and, yes, heroic struggle against a barbaric practice . . . a usefully broad view of the fight against slavery in San Francisco’s Chinatown, one especially effective in giving voice to previously underappreciated figures.” —Gary Kamiya, The New York Times Book Review
Books will be available for purchase courtesy of Napa Bookmine and the authors will be available for book signing.
