Friends of the Ferguson Library, Darien Library, and Barrett Bookstore present, Zakiya Dalila Harris, author of The Other Black Girl.
About The Other Black Girl
Get Out meets The Devil Wears Prada in this electric debut about the tension that unfurls when two young Black women meet against the starkly white backdrop of New York City book publishing. The Other Black Girl is a whip-smart, dynamic thriller and sly social commentary that is perfect for anyone who has ever felt manipulated, threatened, or overlooked in the workplace. The book will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very last twist.
