Detroit Public Library Welcomes New York Times Bestselling Author Sister Souljah
The Author Talk @ Main event will feature Sister Souljah discussing her latest novel, A Moment of Silence: Midnight III at the Library's Clara Stanton Jones Auditorium
The presentation and book signing event will take place on Saturday, April 9, 2016, 3:00- 6:00 p.m. at the Detroit Public Library - Main Library located at 5201 Woodward Avenue in Midtown Detroit.
In her latest heart-pounding novel, Sister Souljah continues to write the powerful stories of temptation, danger and passion that her fans have come to love. A Moment of Silence returns to the story of Midnight and continues to paint the colorful journey of the popular fictional character as only Sister Souljah can.
"We are truly excited to welcome Sister Souljah to the Detroit Public Library to discuss A Moment of Silence," said Christine Peele, Detroit Public Library's Visiting Author Committee Chair. "She has not only captured the spirit of her fans with her dynamic novels and vivid characters, but she has used her platform to speak out on societal issues facing inner cities like Detroit."
Sister Souljah experienced early fame writing powerful hip-hop lyrics and reciting them on a mic, but that beginning pales in comparison to her work as an author, political activist and educator of underclass urban youth.
Born in the Bronx, New York, Sister Souljah is a graduate of Rutgers University where she earned a degree in American History and African Studies. She also attended Cornell University's Advanced Placement Study program and studied abroad in Europe at the University of Salamanca.
