Program Description

Event Details

Jason Mott will speak at Central Library at 7 PM on Wednesday, May 25. Mott’s 2021 novel, Hell of a Book, was awarded the National Book Award for Fiction, one of America’s highest literary honors. The book – sometimes funny, sometimes heartbreaking, always thought-provoking – tells the story of a Black author who sets out on a cross-country publicity tour for his latest book, and the novel twists and bends into a surprising, magical story that touches on everything from injustice to police brutality to the nation’s reckoning over a racial tragedy playing out on the news.

Join the AViD livestream via Zoom! The waiting room will open at 6:55 PM on Wednesday, May 25. The password is "avid".
