New Works: Adrian Matejka, Cedric Tillman
and Wendy S. Walters

Treat yourself to a reading featuring Adrian Matejka, Cedric Tillman and Wendy S. Walters. Yusef Komunyakaa calls Adrian Matejka’s Big Smoke, finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award, “unadorned and honed.” Cedric Tillman’s debut collection Lilies in the Valley is “a new voice ready to testify and do so in a way that no one has yet done before (Brian Gillmore).” Of Wendy S. Walters’s Troy, Michigan, Dawn Lundy Martin lauds, “Walters’s quiet, haunting utterances are beautifully precise mappings of the measure of a city’s weight and thereby its dark (or darkened) soul.” Reception and book signing follow. Free and open to the public.
