Virtual Book Tour
The last week or so I've been doing interviews with podcasters, and radio hosts, about my upcoming novel, Time's Undoing. It's been a really good opportunity to think about what I want to say about the book. I get questions about goals, the craft work, the balance between truth and fiction, and what I want readers to take away from the book. On this last point, after readers have turned the final page of my book, I hope they will have a new, or better, understanding of the impact the era known as Jim Crow has had on Black lives in America--even today. Secondly, have a context for understanding that law-enforcement excessive force is a long-standing, and systemic, problem in this country that still needs to be solved. Third, I hope readers will reflect on the power of community to both press for change, and nurture love and joy for families and individuals, even under the harshest of circumstances.
