Book Launch: Debbie Rigaud presents A Girl's Guide to Love & Magic
In conversation with Ibi Zoboi

We're always delighted to celebrate books that highlight the neighborhood and communities our bookstores exist within, so we're thrilled to present A Girl's Guide to Love & Magic, the newest YA novel from bestselling author Debbie Rigaud—a celebration of Haitian and Caribbean culture, and a story of first love, vodou, and finding yourself, all set against the backdrop of the West Indian Day Parade in Brooklyn. Cicely Destin lives for the Parade, the joyous celebration of Caribbean culture that takes over the streets of her neighborhood. But this year, fate has other ideas. Before the parade, a rogue, mischievous spirit seems to take possession of Cicely's aunt during a spiritual reading. Though Cicely hardly knows anything about Vodou, or how to get someone un-possessed, it falls to her to set things right—and the clock is ticking. Award-winning YA author Ibi Zoboi (Punching the Air) joins Rigaud on Flatbush Ave. for a reading, conversation, and audience Q&A in Cicely's own neighborhood!
