Danell Jones: Book Launch for "An African Writer in London."

September 5, 2018, 5:30 PM - 8:00 PM @ Community Room

Enjoy a launch party for local author Danell Jones' new book, including a reception, book signing, and an entertaining talk, "Outside the Gates of Downton Abbey: An African Writer in London." In "An African in Imperial London" Jones creates a rich portrait of African A.B.C. Merriman-Labor, who moved to London to become a writer in 1904. This true story describes his experiences in a city that was home to both the extremely wealthy and the destitute. Jones carries readers beyond the walls of "Downton Abbey" to an intriguing world of diversity, ingenuity, and struggle. "An African in Imperial London: The Indomitable Life of A.B.C. Merriman-Labor" will be available for purchase at a special "Book Launch" discount rate.
