Revolution Books Hosts Two “Bookend” Events as Part of the Brooklyn Book Festival, Sept. 16-23

September 19, Thursday, 7 pm
Harriet Washington, author of the acclaimed Medical Apartheid, will present her new book, A Terrible Thing to Waste: Environmental Racism and Its Assault on the American Mind. Washington deconstructs the fraudulent notion of intelligence as an inherited trait. She identifies the deleterious effects of institutional factors and environmental racism on learning and cognitive abilities in marginalized communities of color. And what needs to change.

September 21, Saturday, 3 pm
Two authors of two ambitious debut novels. Novuyo Tshuma is a Zimbabwean writer living in Houston. House of Stone is her sweeping epic spanning the fall of Rhodesia through Zimbabwe’s turbulent beginnings, exploring the persistence of the oppressed in a young nation seeking an identity but built on forgetting. Namwali Serpell is a Zambian writer who teaches at the University of California, Berkeley. The Old Drift is an inter-generational saga that combines history, romance, and science fiction, revealing the cruelties and absurdities of colonialism, and the yearning to create and cross borders.
