Zakiya Dalila Harris presents The Other Black Girl
In conversation with Andrea Bartz
How the time has both flown and crawled since our virtual launch in 2021 for Zakiya Dalila Harris's “[r]iveting, fearless, and vividly original” (Emily St. John Mandel) debut novel, The Other Black Girl—and how thrilled we are to welcome Harris back in-person to our Fort Greene store's events stage one year later to celebrate the paperback release! Harris's New York Times-bestselling novel explores the tension that unfurls when two young Black women meet against the starkly white backdrop of New York City book publishing. Hailed as a "dazzling, darkly humorous story" centered on "its penetrating critique of gatekeeping in the publishing industry" (Publishers Weekly, Starred Review), The Other Black Girl speaks urgently and virtuosically to anyone who's ever felt manipulated, threatened, or overlooked in the workplace.
