Rion Amilcar Scott and Amber Sparks

Sun, 11 Jun, 2017 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Rion Amilcar Scott reads from his debut short story collection Insurrections, which explores the lives of the black citizens of Cross River, a fictional town in Maryland, The Root notes that “In Scott’s hands, the short story collection becomes an epic album, each story placed in musical accordance with the next to craft a complete, melodic whole.”

Scott is joined by Amber Sparks, author of The Unfinished World, which has received high praise in several outlets, including The New York Times: “Sparks’s stylish second collection is the work of a young writer whose voice feels far wiser than her years, as she engages with ancient themes: the Greek myths, the rituals of death, the small tokens that lovers trade over a lifetime of experience.”
