NEW STEW: Watch January’s Episode Of ‘Book Stew’ With National Book Award Nominee Deesha Philyaw

Below is an announcement from Wilmington Community Television’s “Book Stew:”

WILMINGTON, MA — The January Book Stew episode features 2019 National Book Award nominee Deesha Philyaw and her short story collection The Secret Life of Church Ladies (now also available as an audiobook through Audible). These nine stories are overflowing with humor and family tensions and good and bad relationships and especially, Black joy. My favorite was “Dear Sister”, written in the form of a letter of introduction to a newly discovered family member. I think you’ll really relish hearing Deesha read an excerpt.
