WHAT WE (CAN'T WAIT TO) READ // The Sweetest Fruits by Monique Truong

Monique Truong rocks a Zuri like no other, and we're so excited that the novel she's been working on for the last eight years is finally entering the world for all of us to enjoy, TOMORROW! 

From the Washington Post: "with great generosity and compassion, Truong explores the difference between writing and telling stories, with the question of who gets to speak and who remains silent."

Zuri <3 Authors!

As you have probably figured out, we're pretty big readers here at Zuri, and it is an endless source of pride and delight to know that some of our favorite authors don our frocks! 

This week, we're celebrating a few of these literary ladies (including Monique Truong, above!) by highlighting their work and turning their words into action by auctioning signed novels and donating the proceeds to an organization of their choice. Now, as ever, let's celebrate women's voices and support each other!



WHAT WE (CAN'T WAIT TO) READ // Everything Inside by Edwidge Danticat

Edwidge Danticat graciously donated a signed copy of her newest work, Everything Inside, a collection of short stories about immigrants, for our auction! All proceeds will go to FotoKonbit, an organization created to engage, educate and support Haitians in the telling of their own stories through photography. 

We can't wait to read this collection, and hope that you'll hop over to the auction and nab yourself a copy!

Greetings from Detroit!

 

Thanks all of you who came by to see Kadia last week in Detroit! Our dresses will be in residence at Detroit is the New Black through the end of the month, so stop in and say hello!

We asked Kadia to share some thoughts from her first visit to Detroit:

I was very excited to go to Detroit with Zuri but what I discovered exceeded all of my expectations! I received such a warm welcome and had the chance to learn about the amazing art scene of the city. Visiting art sites such as the Heidelberg Project and Dabls’s African bead store and hearing about their stories was so enriching! Meeting the Zuri family in Detroit was the best part and I can’t wait to come back and have even more Coney Islands! Merci Détroit!

WHAT WE'RE READING // Sing, Unburied, Sing by Jessmyn Ward

This is in many ways a ghost story, where the living and dead, past and present struggle to find a place in this world and the next. Jojo lives with his grandparents in Bois Sauvage, Mississippi, and when his mother comes home from another one of her drug-fueled benders to take him and his younger sister to pick up their father from prison, they journey through memories of generational traumas finding pain and release.
