Mecca Jamilah Sullivan presents Big Girl
In Conversation with James Hannaham!
Greenlight is honored to host the paperback release of Big Girl by Mecca Jamilah Sullivan. Shortlisted for the Center for Fiction First Novel Prize, Big Girl is “filled with everyday people who, in Mecca Jamilah Sullivan’s gifted hands, show us the love and struggle of what it means to be inside bodies that don’t always fit with the outside world” (Jacqueline Woodson). In tracing the perils and pleasures of the inheritance that comes with being born, Sullivan pushes boundaries and creates an unforgettable portrait of Black womanhood in America. Joined by author James Hannaham (Didn't Nobody Give a Shit What Happened to Carlotta) in Fort Greene for a night to remember.
