**POSTPONED** National Book Award-winner’s wise and witty new novel about the witnesses of a shooting
We are canceling all author events through the end of March, due to the public health advisory for the COVID-19 virus.
We hope to reschedule as many of these and other events as we can after this crisis is over.
The store remains open for normal business during regular hours. It will stay open as long as possible. We believe the shopping environment in our stores is safe for both our employees and customers.
In September 1969, a fumbling, cranky old church deacon known as Sportcoat shuffles into the courtyard of the Cause Houses housing project in south Brooklyn, pulls a .38 from his pocket, and in front of everybody shoots the project's drug dealer at point-blank range.
As the story deepens, it becomes clear that the lives of the characters—caught in the tumultuous swirl of 1960s New York—overlap in unexpected ways. When the truth does emerge, McBride shows us that not all secrets are meant to be hidden, that the best way to grow is to face change without fear, and that the seeds of love lie in hope and compassion.
Bringing to these pages both his masterly storytelling skills and his abiding faith in humanity, James McBride has written a novel every bit as involving as The Good Lord Bird and as emotionally honest as The Color of Water. Told with insight and wit, Deacon King Kong demonstrates that love and faith live in all of us.
This event has been canceled. We hope to reschedule when the current public health crisis is over.
