Los Angeles Book Club: Friday Black
PEN America hopes to see you at our February Book Club to discuss Friday Black by Nana Kwame Adjei-Brenyah. Hosted by Allison Conner.
“In Friday Black, the dystopian future Adjei-Brenyah depicts—like all great dystopian fiction—is bleakly futuristic only on its surface. At its center, each story—sharp as a knife—points to right now.” —Tommy Orange, New York Times Book Review
