NYC – Futureface Signing + Presentation

Author Alex Wagner appears in conversation with Ta-Nehisi Coates on Thursday, April 26, 2018 at 7:00 PM  about her new memoir FUTUREFACE.

The daughter of a Burmese mother and a white American father, journalist Alex Wagner (CBS News, The Atlantic) grew up thinking of herself as a “Futureface” — a proud part of our world’s mixed-race future.

But her post-racial ideals grew more complicated when a family mystery led her into an epic global journey to understand the truth of her ancestry. Join Wagner, author of the gripping new book Futureface, and National Book Award winner Ta-Nehisi Coates (Between the World and Me) for a profound conversation on the American experience of race, immigration, exile and identity. Who do we believe ourselves to be — and who are we really?

A book signing follows the event.

FL – An Evening with Ta-Nehisi Coates

Press Release:

Books & Books and Miami Book Fair are proud to present An Evening with Ta-Nehisi Coates on Thursday, January 11, 2018 at 7:00 PM in MDC’s Wolfson Campus Chapman room. Tickets are $30 per person and include a copy of the book. Get tickets at the link!

The conversation will be moderated by Nadege Green, who covers social justice issues for WLRN. The event is a special presentation of Miami Book Fair and Books & Books who once again join forces to bring the South Florida community an unforgettable encounter with leading-edge authors of note.

In 2008, National Book Award-winning author Ta-Nehisi Coates went from believing that a black president was impossible, to being challenged by the sudden prospect of one. In his new book, WE WERE EIGHT YEARS IN POWER: An American Tragedy, Coates recalls the moment: “I remember how Obama caused me to question myself and my basic relationship with my country. All my life I had seen myself, and my people, backed into a corner. Had I been wrong?”

To answer that question, WE WERE EIGHT YEARS IN POWER employs the same erudite storytelling, self-reflection and unsparing honesty that propelled Between the World and Me into the cultural zeitgeist and led Toni Morrison to hail it as “required reading.” Part memoir and part polemic, Coates powerfully examines the threads between the unprecedented election of Barack Obama and the vicious backlash that fueled the election of Donald Trump, a man Coates argues is America’s “first white president.” He does so through his intimate and revealing perspective—the point of view of a young writer who begins his journey in an unemployment office in Harlem and ends it in the Oval Office, interviewing the President of the United States.

More than an analysis of our first black president, WE WERE EIGHT YEARS IN POWER is a personal narrative that examines the symbiosis of Obama’s influence on American culture, Coates’s intellectual and professional growth, and the inspiring new voices, ideas, and movements that emerged together over this period. This masterwork is comprised of eight fresh essays, in which Coates revisits each year of the Obama administration through his own immersive experiences and observations, and nine iconic essays previously published in The Atlantic, including “Fear of a Black President,” “The Case for Reparations,” “The Black Family in the Age of Mass Incarceration,” and more.

LA – Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body Signing

Press Release:

Octavia Books is thrilled beyond measure to be featuring New York Times bestselling author Roxane Gay on her HUNGER book tour! Local author Maurice Carlos Ruffin will introduce and interview Ms. Gay at an event at the New Orleans JCC on Wednesday, July 12, 2017 at 7:00 pm.

You must pre-purchase the book from Octavia Books to attend the event. Details at the link.

Roxane Gay has written with intimacy and sensitivity about food and bodies, using her own emotional and psychological struggles as a means of exploring our shared anxieties over pleasure, consumption, appearance, and health. As a woman who describes her own body as “wildly undisciplined,” Roxane understands the tension between desire and denial, between self-comfort and self-care. In HUNGER, she casts an insightful and critical eye on her childhood, teens, and twenties–including the devastating act of violence that acted as a turning point in her young life–and brings readers into the present and the realities, pains, and joys of her daily life.

With the bracing candor, vulnerability, and authority that have made her one of the most admired voices of her generation, Roxane Gay explores what it means to be overweight in a time when the bigger you are, the less you are seen. HUNGER is a deeply personal memoir from one of our finest writers, and tells a story that hasn’t yet been told but needs to be.

This event was originally planned as an in-store event, but has been moved to the JCC to accommodate larger demand. We are very grateful to the JCC for partnering with Octavia Books in support of this important community event.

Roxane Gay is the author of the nonfiction BAD FEMINIST, which was a New York Times bestseller; the novel AN UNTAMED STATE, a finalist for the Dayton Peace Prize; and the story collection, AYITI. An opinion contributor to The New York Times, she has also written for Time, McSweeney’s, the Virginia Quarterly Review, the Los Angeles Times, The Nation, The Rumpus, Bookforum, Slate, and Salon, where she was a featured columnist. Her fiction has also been selected for Best American Short Stories 2012, and Best American Mystery Stories 2014, and other publications. She lives in Lafayette, Indiana.
