Project Row Houses, in partnership with Brazos Bookstore, presents: Sarah Broom - THE YELLOW HOUSE

Join us for an author event with Sarah Broom, including a reading, discussion, audience Q&A, and book signing.

Doors open at 6:30pm | Event begins at 7:00pm

ABOUT THE BOOK: In her dazzling debut, THE YELLOW HOUSE, Broom offers an intimate portrayal of New Orleans East—fifty times the size of the French Quarter, but historically ignored by travelogues, entangled in systems of race and class, and neglected long before Hurricane Katrina.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Sarah M. Broom has contributed to the New Yorker, New York Times Magazine, Oxford American, and O, The Oprah Magazine, among others. She received her Master’s in Journalism from the University of California, Berkeley, and has been awarded fellowships from the Djerassi Resident Artists Program and The MacDowell Colony. She lives in Harlem with her partner, filmmaker Dee Rees, and a tiny brown dog.
