The Summer Prince: Alaya Dawn Johnson

About a week ago Fisk and I had the pleasure of attending a reading of The Summer Prince by our friend Alaya Dawn Johnson at Word in Brooklyn.  I poured a glass of wine, chatted with some friends, before perking up my ears to listen to an excerpt of this new book. 


The excerpt was engaging, and then quietly some music began, and soon there was a talented woman dancing - dancing the rhythm of the scene in the novel.  



So far, this novel has been a nice little break to the books I'm normally reading, and so great to see a friend publish such an imaginative and fun novel.
