Come meet Sapphire at the Central Brooklyn Library


Monday, August 15, 6:30PM
Central Library, Dweck Center

Sapphire, author of the modern classic Push (the basis for the award-winning movie Precious), will read from her brand new novel. In The Kid, Sapphire brings her readers deep into the interior life of Abdul Jones, the son of Precious, the unforgettable heroine of Push. Starting when Abdul is nine, the story moves from a Mississippi dirt farm to Harlem in its heyday, and from a Catholic orphanage to downtown artist’s lofts, as it tells of a twenty-first century young man’s fight to find the path to his future.
