An Evening with Tochi Onyebuchi

Join us for an exciting collaboration between Loyalty Bookstores and Petworth Neighborhood Library for an evening with author Tochi Onyebuchi, held at the Petworth Library for his latest release, Riot Baby. Rooted in foundational loss and the hope that can live in anger, Riot Baby is both a global dystopian narrative an intimate family story with quietly devastating things to say about love, fury, and the black American experience. Ella and Kev are brother and sister, both gifted with extraordinary power. Their childhoods are defined and destroyed by structural racism and brutality. Their futures might alter the world. When Kev is incarcerated for the crime of being a young black man in America, Ella ― through visits both mundane and supernatural ― tries to show him the way to a revolution that could burn it all down.

At the Petworth Neighborhood Library, 4200 Kansas Ave., NW, Washington, DC. Click here for info.
