Presentation & Booksigning with Sapphire: The Kid

Colfax Avenue: Sapphire, whose bestselling novel Push was adapted into the Academy Award-winning film Precious, will read from and sign the new paperback edition of her follow-up novel The Kid (Penguin Press), which gives voice to Abdul Jones, the son of Push’s unforgettable heroine, Precious. In a generational story that moves with the speed of thought from a Mississippi dirt farm to Harlem in its heyday; from a troubled Catholic orphanage to downtown artists’ lofts, The Kid tells of a twenty- first-century young man’s fight to find a way toward the future.
