Bridgett M. Davis, Into the Go-Slow

Wednesday, November 5, 2014 at 6:30pm

Northwood Branch 4420 Loch Raven Boulevard, Baltimore, MD 21218

In 1986 Detroit, twenty-one-year-old Angie passes time working in a mall and watching sitcoms with her mom. But beneath the surface, she is consumed by thoughts of her sister Ella's death years earlier in Nigeria.

On impulse, Angie travels to Lagos and begins to retrace Ella's steps. Against a backdrop of the city's infamous go-slow traffic, she uncovers some harsh truths.

Bridgett M. Davis' debut novel, Shifting Through Neutral, was a finalist for the 2005 Hurston/Wright Legacy Award. Davis is the books editor at Bold As Love Magazine, an online black culture site. She is a professor at Baruch College, City University of New York, where she is the director of the Sidney Harman Writer-in-Residence Program.
