AWARD WINNING AUTHOR MARLON JAMES TO VISIT

TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 3; 7 PM

Acclaimed author MARLON JAMES will introduce the softcover edition of his stunning book, A Brief History of Seven Killings. It explores the attempted assassination of Bob Marley in the late 1970s. On December 3, 1976, two days before he was to play the free Smile Jamaica Concert, Bob Marley’s house was stormed by gunmen. The attack nearly killed the Reggae superstar, his wife, and his manager, and injured several others. Two days later, after the concert, Marley left Jamaica not to return for 2 years. The book goes much deeper than this one incident but engages the reader in complex intertwined political and criminal conspiracies stretching from the Caribbean to Manhattan and implicating CIA and drug trafficking operations. It won the 2015 Anisfield-Wolf Book Award for fiction, the 2015 Minnesota Book Award, and the Man Booker Prize 2015. RIVERHEAD

Marlon James has also written John Crow’s Devil and The Book of Night Women, which won the Dayton Literary Peace Prize in 2010.
