Book launch: Nicole Dennis-Benn presents Here Comes the Sun
(A Greenlight First Editions Club pick)
In conversation with Ashley C. Ford
Wine reception to follow
In Nicole Dennis-Benn’s radiant debut, a cast of unforgettable women battle for independence while a maelstrom of change threatens their Jamaican village. Encompassing the clash of commercial development and individuals struggling for financial, sexual and personal freedom, Here Comes the Sun offers a dramatic glimpse into a vibrant, passionate world most outsiders see simply as paradise. Praised by fellow writers including Marlon James, Naomi Jackson, and Chinelo Okparanta (and selected as Greenlight's First Editions Club pick for August) Dennis’-Benn’s novel is one of the most highly anticipated books of the season, and Greenlight is proud to celebrate its launch with a wine reception, reading, and discussion with beloved writer and journalist Ashley C. Ford.
