“Shelter: A Black Tale of Homeland, Baltimore”, Book Launch Party celebrating Professor Lawrence P. Jackson


April 24 @ 3:00 pm – 5:30 pm

A book reading, signing, and meet & greet celebrating Bloomberg Distinguished Professor Lawrence P. Jackson’s latest manuscript, Shelter: A Black Tale of Homeland, Baltimore (Greywolf, 344 p.). Shelter is a probing portrait of the misunderstood city of Baltimore by a returning native son. In resonant prose, Jackson ably conveys the feuding aspirations and unease of the Black middle class in Baltimore. The result is a stirring reflection on the meaning of home.
