Book Launch: Zakiya Dalila Harris presents The Other Black Girl
In conversation with Brit Bennett
Greenlight is thrilled to host our neighbor Zakiya Dalila Harris for the launch of her highly anticipated debut novel, The Other Black Girl! Twenty-six-year-old editorial assistant Nella Rogers is tired of being the only Black employee at Wagner Books. Fed up with the isolation and microaggressions, she’s thrilled when Harlem-born and bred Hazel starts working in the cubicle beside hers. They’ve only just started comparing natural hair care regimens, though, when a string of uncomfortable events elevates Hazel to Office Darling, and Nella is left in the dust. Then the notes begin to appear on Nella’s desk: LEAVE WAGNER. NOW. A whip-smart and dynamic thriller and sly social commentary that is perfect for anyone who has ever felt manipulated, threatened, or overlooked in the workplace, The Other Black Girl will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very last twist. Brit Bennett, bestselling author of The Mothers and The Vanishing Half, joins Harris in conversation for the launch of this stellar debut!
