Come hear three rising literary stars! From a house party in Brooklyn, to the mountains of southern Colorado, to the rapidly changing streets of the nation’s capital, these story collections travel the full trajectory and vibrate with vivid prose. Jamel Brinkley (“A Lucky Man,” finalist for the National Book Award), Camille Acker (“Training School for Negro Girls”), and Kali Fajardo-Anstine (“Sabrina and Corina”) have written coming-of-age stories anchored by young characters who are discovering power and loss, learning the rules and how to break them.
