OKC - ASL Interpreted Storytelling / Reading
Full Circle Books is pleased to welcome Kambri Crews, CODA author of Burn Down the Ground: A Memoir (Random House) on Sunday, April 15, at 2 p.m. Crews will be signing books, taking questions from the audience, and reading from her memoir.
Burn Down the Ground is Crews’ powerful, affecting, and unflinching memoir about her unconventional childhood living with deaf parents in a tin shed in rural Texas, and her attempts to reconcile that harrowing childhood to her present life—one in which her father is serving a twenty-year sentence in a maximum-security prison for attempted murder.
SUN, APR 15 @ 2PM
Full Circle Books
1900 NW Expressway
Oklahoma City, OK 73118
The event is free and an interpreter for the Deaf will be provided. Books will be available for purchase or you can bring your own copy. The book is available for purchase anywhere books are sold including Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
PRAISE FOR BURN DOWN THE GROUND:
"Poignant and unsettling." —Kirkus Reviews
"A compelling testament to the strength of the human spirit.”—Booklist
"Crews' account (the title refers to lighting brush on fire to clear out snakes) is as well-paced and stirring as a novel. In her fluid narrative (she's also a storyteller on the side, a gig that helped her develop this book), Crews neither wallows in self-pity nor plays for cheap black-comedic yuks. Instead, this book stands out for what matters most: Crews' story, bluntly told." —Elle magazine
“Harrowing…A remarkable odyssey of scorched earth, collateral damage, and survival." —Publishers Weekly
