Free Library of Philadelphia - Charles Blow - Fire Shut Up in My Bones
Joseph Fox Bookshop, Tuesday, September 30 at 7:30pm
Fire shut up in my bones Charles Blow New York Times columnist Charles Blow is renowned for his visual arguments that feature charts and essays as a unique form of opinion journalism. He is also a regular commentator on CNN, MSNBC, and the BBC, among other networks. The Root magazine recently named him the 11th most influential African American in the world. A departure from his usual style and subject matter, Fire shut up in my bones is a memoir of Blow’s difficult childhood in a small Louisiana town. Though he eventually escaped his hometown, he found it more difficult to escape the deeper legacy of slavery, family demons, and violence. Parkway Central Library 1901 Vine Street Philadelphia, PA 19103 (between 19th and 20th Streets on the Parkway) This is a FREE event; no tickets or reservations are required.

Joseph Fox Bookshop, Thursday, October 2 at 7:30pm
Blackballed: The Black Vote and Democracy Darryl Pinckney In “perfect tones and full of timbre” (Kirkus Reviews), novelist, playwright, and essayist Darryl Pinckney explores issues of racial, sexual, and cultural identity in contemporary America.

The author of two collections of essays about African-American literature, he is also a frequent contributor to The New York Review of Books, Slate, and The Nation, among other publications. In Blackball—a fusion of memoir, historical study, and social analysis—Pinckney examines 150 years of black participation in the U.S. electoral process. Culture Worrier: Selected Columns 1984–2014: Reflections on Race, Politics and Social Change Clarence Page Syndicated columnist and member of the Chicago Tribune editorial board, Clarence Page is a fixture in more than 150 newspapers. Since joining the Tribune in 1969, he has tackled many of the most pressing and complicated issues of our time. Among his journalistic accolades are the 1989 Pulitzer Prize for Commentary and a Lifetime Achievement Award from the National Association of Black Journalists. Page is also a frequent contributor to The McLaughlin Group, NewsHour with Jim Lehrer, and the Chris Matthews Show. Culture Warrior is an archive of his most insightful and influential essays.
