In The Other Black Girl, author Zakiya Dalila Harris writes about Nella Rogers, the only Black employee at the otherwise starkly white publishing house, Wagner Books. Her thrilling, genre-bending novel—an instant New York Times bestseller—incorporates elements from horror and spy novels as it slyly comments on privilege in all aspects of our society. Harris reads from and speaks about her inspiration for writing The Other Black Girl, her debut novel. Don’t miss the reading or Harris’s on-stage conversation with Lissa Jones-Lofgren, host of KMOJ radio’s Urban Agenda show and the Black Market Reads podcast. All are welcome at this special NOMMO presentation from the University of Minnesota Libraries. WEDS, 7-8:30 PM. Free.
