VIRTUAL: Book Club: Discuss Kings of B'more with R. Eric Thomas

Join author, playwright, and humorist R. Eric Thomas to discuss his coming-of-age novel Kings of B'more.

Date: Monday, March 6th, 2023, 6:30 - 7:30pm ET 
Location: Virtual via Zoom


Join R. Eric Thomas, author of Kings of B’more as he shares a story of two queer Black boys discovering new truth about themselves, a story of friendship, belonging and joy. When one friend finds out his favorite person is moving out of state at the end of the week, they attempt to squeeze all of their planned life-expanding experiences all into their last day together. They end up on a mini road trip, their first Pride, and a rooftop dance party, all while keeping their respective parents, who track them on a family location app, off their trail. They make a pact to do all the things—big and small—they’ve been too scared to do. But nothing feels scarier than saying goodbye to someone you love.
