Cancelled-Sharyn Skeeter with Donna Miscolta
This event has been cancelled. Please check our calendar for an update as we hope to reschedule this for another night.
In novelist Sharyn Skeeter’s book, Dancing with Langston (Green Place Books), Carrie, a business manager who always wanted to be a dancer, has two commitments. She made a promise to her late father to move Cousin Ella, a former Paris café dancer, from her condemned Harlem apartment to a safe place. She’s also committed to catch a flight to Seattle with her husband for his new job. But Cousin Ella resists leaving the apartment where she’s had salons with Langston Hughes. She also has a mysterious gift that she wants Carrie to earn. If she does, a revelation about Carrie’s father and his cousin Langston Hughes will change her life. Sharyn Skeeter was fiction/poetry/book review editor at Essence and editor-in-chief at Black Elegance. Her grandmother’s Langston family inspired this novel. She appears with Seattle writer Donna Miscolta, author most recently of Hola and Goodbye.
