Signing and Reading of “We Cast a Shadow” by Maurice Carlos Ruffin

Maurice Carlos Ruffin will be in conversation with Kiese Laymon, best selling author of Heavy.

This electrifying, hallucinatory novel is at once a keen satire of surviving racism in America and a profoundly moving family story. At its center is a father at war with himself who just wants his son to thrive in a broken world. A writer whose work evokes the crackling prose of Ralph Ellison and the dizzying menace of Franz Kafka, Maurice Carlos Ruffin is a ferociously talented new writer who fearlessly shines a light on the violence we inherit, and on the desperate things we do for the ones we love.
