‘Grace’ Author, Natashia Deón to Visit Oceanside Library

Oceanside CA— Oceanside Public Library is proud to present a free program featuring critically acclaimed author Natashia Deón, who will discuss Grace, her distinctive, immersive, and hauntingly beautiful debut novel.  Deón will speak on Saturday, February 18, at 3:00 p.m., in the Community Rooms at the Civic Center Library, 330 N. Coast Highway in Oceanside.

Deón’s book will be available for sale and the event will include a signing by the author.  Immediately following, the North County African-American Women’s Association will host a reception for the author in celebration of Black History Month.

Grace, named a Kirkus Review Best Book of 2016 and an Entropy Magazine Best Book of 2016, is a sweeping, inter-generational saga featuring a group of outcast women during one of the most compelling eras in American history, the years before and during the Civil War.  It is a universal story of freedom, love, and motherhood, told in a dazzling and original voice set against a rich and transporting historical backdrop.  The Oceanside Public Library looks forward to hosting Deón and celebrating her remarkable novel, which has been incredibly popular with Oceanside readers.

This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Oceanside Public Library.  To register for this free program, please visit oceansidelibrary.eventbrite.com.
