“Two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Whitehead continues his boisterous, incisive saga of late-20th-century Harlem and of a furniture dealer barely keeping his criminal side at bay….It’s not just crime fiction at its craftiest, but shrewdly rendered social history.”—Kirkus Reviews

Tickets to hear Colson Whitehead in person cost $35 and include one copy of the book “Crook Manifesto.” Books will be available to be picked up from Library and Festival partner Watchung Booksellers after the book’s publication on Tuesday, July 18, 2023.
