Ciervo Blanco Book Club organizes in Madrid a book discussion in English about the novel ‘Halsey Street’ by Naima Coster
This is a free book discussion in English. The only requirement is to have read the book!
My debut novel, Halsey Street, is a story of family, loss, and renewal, set in a rapidly gentrifying Brooklyn. …I write fiction and nonfiction (but deeply admire poets), and I believe that stories should be emotionally messy, hard, and beautiful, as life is. I tend to write about the inner lives of women, family dynamics, memory, race, class, migration, art making, trauma and recovery, love and desire, and our attempts—troubled, brave, wild—to find connection.Naima Coster
Halsey Street is a new(ish) novel published 2017 by American author Naima Coster. Hope you can join us! The discussion will start a few minutes after 18:00, the flow of conversation is much easier if we try to arrive on time:) Thank you!
Naima’s stories and essays have appeared in the New York Times, the Rumpus, Aster(ix), Kweli, The Paris Review Daily, and elsewhere.
