speaking & signing
Join us this evening as LaShonda Katrice Barnett shares her debut novel, a dynamic tale of triumph against the odds and the compelling story of one woman’s struggle for equality. Both an epic vision of the hardships and injustices that defined an era and a moving and compelling story of a complicated history we only thought we knew.
Lashonda Katrice Barnett was born in Kansas City, Missouri. She is the editor of the volumes I Got Thunder: Black Women Songwriters on Their Craft (2007) and Off the Record: Conversations with African American and Brazilian Women Musicians (2013). She has taught literature and history at Columbia University, Sarah Lawrence College, Hunter College, and Brown University. Barnett's short fiction has won the College Language Association's Margaret Walker Award and she was recently published in Guernica's issue on the South.
