Author in Focus: James Baldwin


Join the National Book Foundation and the Public Library Albuquerque and Bernalillo County for a celebration focused on the literary legacy and seminal works of James Baldwin, a four-time National Book Award Finalist (Giovanni’s Room, Nobody Knows My Name, The Fire Next Time, and Just Above My Head). Author in Focus: James Baldwin is presented with filmmaker Raoul Peck and Velvet Films, the team behind the critically acclaimed documentary I Am Not Your Negro, with funding from the Ford Foundation. The program will include a screening of the film and a discussion between notable authors who will talk about the importance of Baldwin and his work’s urgent relevance in today’s society.

There will be a limited amount of free titles by James Baldwin at the event.
