Arkansas native Sanderia Faye will read from her debut novel, Mourner's Bench, published by University of Arkansas Press in 2015, and take questions from the audience. A book signing will follow and copies of Mourner's Bench will be available for purchase from Nightbird Books at the event.
NOTE: This event is at Universal United Fellowship of Fayetteville, not Nightbird Books.
Mourners Bench is the story of a young girl coming to terms with religion, racism, and feminism while also navigating the terrain of early adolescence and trying to settle into her place in her family and community.
