Brooklyn Book Festival: Brooklyn, New York
After a fantastic summer touring the East Coast and engaging hundreds of readers, David enters the fall energized, excited about the new novel he’s been working on over the last few months, and itching to get back out on the road.
David has always been a huge fan of September—the crisp cool air, thick tactile fabrics, and lazy afternoons reading new fiction while revisiting a few 20th Century classics. But since David has been asked to appear at the 2017 Brooklyn Book Festival, his autumn fandom has turned to pure love. That’s right. This year, David—along with four super-talented writers—will be recognized amongst the brightest up-and-coming novelists in the game. So come out, get your signed copy of We Hold These Truths, and hear from David as he discusses his debut novel and the complex Obama-era race politics that inspired its creation.

About We Hold These Truths: Inspired by his tenure as senior aide and deputy campaign manager on a US Senate campaign in North Carolina in 2010, David penned We Hold These Truths, a compelling narrative exploring the complex landscape of race and politics—and the missed opportunity for change—in the aftermath of Barack Obama’s historic 2008 election.
