Ring Shout: P. Djèlí Clark in conversation with Vivian Nabeta

Apr 28, 2021 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Award-winner and Hartford resident P. Djèlí Clark returns with RING SHOUT, a dark fantasy historical novella that gives a supernatural twist to the Ku Klux Klan’s reign of terror.
In America, demons wear white hoods. It’s 1915 and The Birth of a Nation cast a spell across America, swelling the Klan’s ranks and drinking deep from the darkest thoughts of white folk. All across the nation they ride, spreading fear and violence among the vulnerable. They plan to bring Hell to Earth. But even Ku Kluxes can die.
Standing in their way is Maryse Boudreaux and her fellow resistance fighters, a foul-mouthed sharpshooter and a Harlem Hellfighter. Armed with blade, bullet, and bomb, they hunt their hunters and send the Klan’s demons straight to Hell. But something awful’s brewing in Macon, and the war on Hell is about to heat up.
Can Maryse stop the Klan before it ends the world?
“A fantastical, brutal and thrilling triumph of the imagination…Clark’s combination of historical and political reimagining is cathartic, exhilarating and fresh.” ―The New York Times
