Subterranean Books, invites you to an event celebrating the publication of the Library of America’s two volume collection of Harlem Renaissance novels—Five Novels of the 1920s and Four Novels of the 1930s—edited by Rafia Zafar.
On 7 p.m. September 22 Zafar, a professor of English, African & African American, and American Culture Studies, will read from some of the works collected in this set and answer questions about African American literature and the Harlem Renaissance. The event will take place upstairs at the bookstore at 6275 Delmar Boulevard.
Please stop by to listen and to admire the lovely design of the book jackets, based on the murals of Harlem Renaissance painter Aaron Douglas. Both volumes will be available for purchase, and Professor Zafar would be happy to sign copies.
