Harlem, NY: Penguin Classics Presents - An Evening to Celebrate Langston Hughes

Please join Angela Flournoy (novelist and author of the introduction of NOT WITHOUT LAUGHTER), Doreen St. Felix (New Yorker staff writer) and Chris Jackson (publisher of One World and Editor-In-Chief at Random House) for an evening to celebrate Langston Hughes’ legacy at the Langston Hughes House in Harlem where the author lived and wrote during the last twenty years of his life. 

Largely autobiographical, NOT WITHOUT LAUGHTER is the coming of age novel of a young black boy growing up in racially divided rural Kansas in the 1930s. With echoes of current headlines from Ferguson, Chicago, and Saint Paul, it captures the plight of a young black man (and, subsequently, an entire community) attempting to survive in the face of institutionalized inequality. 

This event is free and open to the public (over 21). Wine will be served.

Address: Langston Hughes House | 20 E 127th St, New York, New York 10035
