This event takes place at our Brooklyn location.
Staff favorite N.K. Jemisin's fantastic new book kicks off her new Broken Earth series. The Stillness is prone to shakes, quakes, and other geological happenings; certain people, called orogenes, have the power to stop these shakes before they start. Orogenes are feared and hated, unless they're part of the Fulcrum, where they are trained and controlled. Jemisin weaves three storylines - a mother looking for her kidnapped daughter; a girl taken to the Fulcurm; two orogenes, reluctantly working together - into a mesmerizing whole, building a vivid, uncertain world populated with unforgettable characters. We're proud to host her for the launch of this new book.
RSVP encouraged, but not required.
