Nicholas Boggs will read from his work-in-progress, a new literary biography of James Baldwin, forthcoming from Farrar, Straus, and Giroux in the States, Bloomsbury UK, and Edition Seuil in France. He will also discuss the process of bringing Baldwin’s forgotten 1976 children’s book, Little Man, Little Man: A Story of Childhood, back into print in a 2018 edition he co-edited for Duke University Press, which Entertainment Weekly hailed as “brilliant, essential,” and the New York Times wrote “couldn’t be more timely.”
