What: We are delighted to partner with the Harris County Public Library (HCPL), during their Summer Authorama, to provide books for their event Newsworthy: A Poetry Reading and Reflection with Deborah D.E.E.P. Mouton. She will appear to discuss her book Newsworthy. This event will take place on HCPL's Facebook Live stream.

When: Tuesday, July 28, 2020, 6:30pm

We work hard to bring events to our community for free, because connecting readers with authors is central to our mission. But these programs are not free for us to put on! If you’re interested in attending this event, we hope you’ll consider purchasing a copy of Newsworthy from our bookshop. Your support is critical to keeping us here and offering events like this, and we hope to do that for many years to come!

Newsworthy wrestles with living in a culture infected by white supremacy where current media is distrusted, cursory, and impossible to escape. And yet, we yearn to know. We crave a thoughtfulness--apart from soundbites and viral videos--that plumbs deeper, one that reawakens our shared humanity by reminding us that under headlines beat all of our "pierced hearts."
